HOMECOMING began on the old Aldrich Field, and everything went
well right from the start: a well-attended rendezvous at the Riiode Island
Brown Club's tent, reunions at lunchtime, with a good soccer game to
watch (as our cover suggests). Then at the Stadium a valiant Varsity
football team rose to the occasion with its first Ivy triumph of the season.

Hymn on request . . .
PRESIDING at a Sayles Hall Convocation,
Dean Schuize remarked on the con-
tinuing quality of the choir's music but
said, in view of its occasional disposition
toward modern compositions, that he
sometimes longed for the simple, old-
fashioned, melodic harmonies of "Stand
Up. Stand Up for Jesus."
On his ne.\t appearance in Sayles, Dr.
Schuize started to lead the platform party
down the aisle. He was promptly aware
that the processional music was a rollick-
ing, full-voiced performance of the hymn
he had cited. He opened the exercises by
saying, toward the choir loft: "Touche."

story for our last issue, it was our hope to
use two appropriate quotations as side-bar
bits, and we still like them.
One was what Harold Larrabee said at
a cornerstone laying at Union College:
"It is in libraries that we maintain that
most precious of freedoms: the freedom to
read — and to choose what to read. The
man who builds a library strikes a
mighty blow for the free mind, without
which men and women are no better than
And Harold C. Syrett said at Wesleyan's
1960 Commencement: "My only advice is:
don't join the talkers of the world. Wher-
ever you end up, look for a library where
they make a virtue of silence."

warrants the sequel. You may recall that
the Evening Standard of London was in-

be named Adlai, Franklin, and Harry. Ex-
pecting to find such names only in an
American Democratic-voting family, a re-
porter discovered that Collins was English,
head of the Economic Division of Shell
International. His story noted that a
fourth son had been born but, at that
writing, his name had not been chosen.
The expectation then was that the name
would be Lincoln — a family name.

out the check, and where to send the chair.

GROUNDBREAKING IS IMMINENT for the new Biology Building, across Waterman St. from Pounce House at Brown St,
THE NEXT MOVE
Walter Wilson, who has known each year of Arnold L,ab
history, can tell its story proudly. Bid he is impatient
to get on with the coming chapter of Biology's progress.
BROWN ALU.MM MONTHLY
By J. WALTER WILSON '18
THE YEAR 1914 had three important incidents in the history
of Brown: The celebration of the 150th anniversary of
the founding of Brown, my advent as a Freshman, and the
building of the Arnold Biological Laboratory.
When I came to Brown, the Department of Biology was
still housed in the old Natural History Museum (the Jenckes
Museum), now Rhode Island Hall. The Department of Bot-
any with its herbarium and library was in the basement of
Maxcy with a fairly serviceable greenhouse on the side next
to the John Carter Brown Library, extending back into the
territory of today's Littlefield. Professor Gorham taught the
elementary course (the "cat" course) in one of the larger
museum rooms where, as I remember it, we sat on settees.
After the spring vacation, preparations for removal to the
new Arnold Laboratory made it necessary for our class to
move to a large lecture room in Maxcy where we were intro-
duced to the mysteries of Botany by Dr. York.
All that year the new Laboratory was being built on the
edge of Lincoln Field, eagerly observed by those of us who
were the budding biologists. It was to be a magnificent build-
ing, with a fine auditorium, a library and seminar room, a
shop, excellent storage rooms, modern class rooms and
teaching laboratories with adequate preparation rooms, office
laboratories for the staff members and their assistants, and on
the roof an animal house. I have gathered since that some
contemporaries felt it was somewhat more luxurious than
could be justified.
A Laboratory for 1100 Students
At that time the student body at Brown was about 900
men and 200 women with a sprinkling of graduate students.
It had grown to this size during the 1890's under the dynamic
leadership of "Benny" Andrews, whose name was still magic
among the Faculty and at alumni meetings. It was generally
conceded that this was the optimum size for Brown and that
it should never be increased. So the new Laboratory was de-
signed for a student body of that size with a corresponding
Faculty — four Professors and one Instructor, a woman,
charged with the responsibility of teaching Elementary Bi-
ology to the women's class. The plans for the building, there-
fore, included space precisely allocated to each staff member.
On the first floor the office and laboratory of the woman
Instructor; on the second, Dr. Mead at the east end and Dr.
Walter at the west; and on the third floor, Professor Gorham
on the east end and Dr. Mitchell on the west. Spacious as the
building looked, there was no room for expansion and, fur-
thermore, the equipment was designed for the modest type
of research that constituted the work of those biologists, in
fact, of biologists generally in those days. Research was some-
thing a man did in his office: all he needed was a microscope
and a bottle of alcohol, and he was in business.
The building was pretty well planned, for its day. It was
made possible by funds donated by Dr. Oliver H. Arnold,
1865, a Providence physician who had for several years been
a member of the Visiting Committee of the Department. He
therefore knew of the unique need for a modern laboratory.
The late President Faunce liked to tell how an unannounced
visitor arrived at his office one day and had a little trouble
getting past his secretary. He had come to tell Prexy that he
wanted to give Brown money for a lab.
The donation was about $85,000, of which I believe only
about $75,000 was spent on the building. There were some
features that for some reason it seemed better to postpone so
the extra $10,000 was held in reserve. The building was
equipped by a fund raised among the alumni and the citizens
of Providence. Their names are on the bronze plaque in the
first floor corridor. This fund was nowhere near adequate so
the equipment was meagre, much of it improvised or salvaged
from the old museum.
What About the Old Museum?
With the completion of the building, it was decided to
abandon the museum. This was part of a trend going on in
other colleges and universities. The cost of maintaining such a
museum was considerable, for it had no significant endow-
ment, and public interest was on the wane. There had been
no provision for this white elephant in the new building. How-
ever, the abandonment of the museum presented a problem
because the material had been donated or bequeathed to the
University, and the University had accepted it as a public
trust with the responsibility of preserving it and maintaining
it for the use of the public, at least for teaching purposes. The
material could neither be destroyed nor discarded. (There
The still-energetic career of Dr. J. Walter Wilson
exactly spans the era at Brown University between the
year they started construction of the Arnold Laboratory
(he was a Freshman in 1914) and the flowering of hopes
for the new Biology Building. Obviously, he was the man
to write about what this would mean to the Department
of which he was long Chairman (until last year).
"You want me to talk about the new Biology Building,"
he said. "All right, but let's go back a way first."

was some question, 1 believe, as to whether or not it could be
Furthermore, there were some specimens of unique scien-
tific value for they were the actual specimens, "type speci-
mens" from which Professor Packard had described new
species. Any museum with such materia! is particularly re-
sponsible to see that it is not destroyed or lost, but is always
available for the use of other scientists. Finally it was decided
that the materials should be saved and stored.
Innumerable cheap wooden boxes were made, into which
stuffed birds, bird skins, shells, bones, and specimen bottles
were packed. Some were stored in the attic of the Adminis-
tration Building (now Van Wickle Hall), in space partitioned
off by chicken wire for the sake of security; some in the base-
ment of the old Library (now Robinson Hall); but most in
the new storage space in the new Laboratory. Instead of the
luxurious storage space, we. therefore, lived for years with
deteriorating bird skins, disintegrating butterflies, and desic-
cated snakes and fish in bottles from which the preservative
had long since evaporated.
They remained in possession of this valuable space until with
the expansion following World War II. it became necessary to
recover it for more important purposes. I do not know what
BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY
became of the material stored in Van Wickle or the old Li-
brary. What was stored in the Arnold Laboratory is still stored
on University property in especially prepared quarters adja-
cent to the Seekonk river.
Following World War I, the pressure of student application
and the need for tuition led to an abandonment of the size
limitations previously agreed upon, and Brown began to ex-
pand. New programs, the Honors Program, and the increase
in graduate student enrollment called for additional advanced
courses, more space for classes, especially laboratories, and
more room for the students.
The First of Many Improvisations
Prof. Charles Stuart and I were added to the Faculty, and
the head assistant's job in the elementary course was elevated
to an instructorship. To provide space, the money left over in
the building fund was still available. We had all understood
that the building had been so constructed that an additional
floor could be added. When the "Campus Architects" frowned
upon that plan, however, the alternative was to build a pent-
house set far enough back from the parapet so that it would
not show. This was approved and the penthouse erected — of
the simplest type of factory construction, with the space di-
vided into rooms by wallboard partitions. Most of the rooms
were small, for graduate students, but the west end was left
as a large room for an additional class laboratory. To make
room for the penthouse, the old animal house had to be re-
moved. With no money to build new ones, they were "impro-
vised" out of two-by-fours, boxwood, tar paper and greenhouse
By the late '20s, the space problem was again becoming
intolerable. It was solved this time by the fortunate circum-
stance that the University acquired possession of the frame
house just west of the Laboratory at 91 Waterman St. The
house was of cheap construction with no electricity, a dirt
floor in the cellar, and no promise it would last. So rickety that
it shook with every step, it was in such a bad state of repairs
that it could not be rented. The cost of tearing it down was so
great that we were offered it. provided we could find the
money to fix it up.
So The Annex Came into Being
Fortunately, Dr. Herman C. Pitts was at this time becom-
ing interested in cancer research. He urged us to undertake a
program. From some local source, he obtained $1000 for this
purpose. (This was many years before the initiation of the
present grant-supported programs for cancer research.) With
this money we put in electricity, sinks, and some added plumb-
ing. We tightened the building up a little, scrounged some
furniture from a variety of sources, obtained our first inbred
mice with a transplantable tumor, and hired a research assist-
The building was named "The Biology Annex." In addition
to room for more graduate students, it provided a small class-
room for advanced classes, and a common laboratory for stu-
dents' use in experimental cytology. A few years later with a
grant from the Rockefeller Foundation, a cement floor was
laid in the basement to provide animal quarters that are still
Plans for an addition to the Arnold Laboratory were al-
ready talked about. It would consist of a structure somewhat
like the present building, built on the west end and extending
into Lincoln Field. How this was a part of the development
program of the late twenties, I cannot say, but the program
never really got under way before the great Depression set in,
and we were struggling for financial stability without thinking
further of expansion. The location of the Metcalf Research
Laboratory placed the plans for the proposed Biology addition
in the discard.
During the Depression, the student body increased. With
impetus from the newly established Graduate School under
Dean Richardson, our graduate student program increased
still more rapidly. New men were added to the staff, and space
was again at a premium. The steady expansion continued
during the War until it became almost explosive. After the
War, as indicated above, store rooms were cleaned out and
converted into research rooms; lecture rooms also were di-
vided into small rooms for the same purpose; but the pressure
still increased. New plans for an addition to the Arnold Labo-
ratory were talked of, this time to extend west along Water-
The Neiv Vigor of the Psychologists
Meanwhile a new and flourishing component grew up in the
Life Sciences. Psychology, divorced from Philosophy, moved
into the frame house west of our Annex, and began a sym-
biotic relationship from which we have both profited. Under
the inspired leadership of Dr. Carmichael, Dr. Hunter, and
now Dr. Schlosberg, it has developed into one of the leading
Departments in the country.
As the University acquired the other frame houses, the
Psychology Department took them over, until this great de-
partment was working in three old houses. A new and vig-
orous space problem had developed in the Life Sciences. It
became clear that one appropriate building for this distin-
guished Department must have the highest priority.
With the completion of the Metcalf Research Laboratory,
the Botany Department moved into the space vacated in the
old Newport Rogers Chemistry Laboratory, built in 1861. At
the time it was abandoned by the chemists, it was the oldest
academic chemistry laboratory in the country still in use as a
chemistry laboratory. The refurbished quarters gave the bota-
nists excellent space with elbow room in an old building
which should have been torn down. With considerable in-
genuity, this space has been adopted to their uses, but could
not be adapted for the use of some of the modern experimental
fields they now hope to develop.
When the Wriston Quadrangle was finished and the fraterni-
ties moved in, relinquishing their houses, the old Psi U. house
at 15 Manning St. was turned over to the Biology Department
and became Angell Hall. At surprisingly small cost, it was
converted to a laboratory to house the Elementary Biology
teaching program. The class laboratories were moved there
from the Arnold Laboratory, liberating considerable space on
the first floor. Two of the staff members acquired excellent
quarters, and space became available for several graduate
students. For a relatively small sum, space could be altered
to provide an additional class laboratory which is sorely
needed. The space vacated in the Arnold Laboratory was im-
mediately occupied without any perceptible release of pres-
Rockefeller Gift Permitted a Breakthrough
The first important "breakthrough" toward a definitive
solution of the housing problem in the Life Sciences came
with the provision of a new building for the Psychology De-
partment. For reasons of convenience, this was to be located
on the site of the three frame houses they occupied. As plans
developed, it became clear that the allocation was entirely
inadequate for the building they needed. Fortunately, the
Congress at this time passed the bill that launched the Health
Research Facilities program, under which the Federal Gov-
ernment, through the United States Public Health Service,
provides funds to match institutional funds in building new
research space. Of the 800 projects that have been processed
in this program throughout the country, the Psychological
Laboratory of Brown University vv'as number 2.
The grant obtained assured the building and they now have
it — a fine modern laboratory, of which they are justly proud.
Incidentally, it rendered the proposed plan for the extension
of the Arnold Laboratory westward obsolete — fortunately, as
the events will show.
Meanwhile the department of Biology had received a train-
ing grant from the National Cancer Institute to support an
expanded graduate and post-graduate program in the basic
sciences on which cancer research depends. The grant in-
cluded funds necessary to convert a house into a laboratory
to provide space for this expansion. The house at the corner
of Brown and Waterman Sts. was acquired in part through a
bequest from Dr. Herbert Partridge '92 and is now a fine
laboratory for the type of research it houses. Partridge House
provides space for five Faculty members, their research
assistants, and a dozen graduate students. The heavy equip-
ment includes two electron microscopes well quartered in the
Nezv Moves But Still the Pressure
When the psychologists moved into their new building from
the old D.U. house at 80 Waterman St., which they had tem-
porarily occupied, that house was allocated to the Biology
Department. Again matching funds from the Health Research
Facilities program of the United States Public Health Service
aided the funds of the University in converting it to a labora-
tory (now Walter Hall) for the rapidly expanding program in
genetics. This has permitted its growth to an outstanding one
in research, and in graduate and postgraduate study, now
supported in part by a training grant from the National Insti-
tutes of Health.
As these programs have moved out of the Arnold Labora-
tory, the crowded programs still there have expanded to fill
the vacated space still without any perceptible release of pres-
sure. Some of the most important aspects of modern Biology
were still struggling in almost stifling circumstances with too
little space and that inadequate for the heavy equipment re-
quired. It had long been clear that to keep pace with modern
developments, a new building would be necessary. The com-
pletion of the Psychology Laboratory vacated the number one
priority position, and our plans began to develop.
We at first laid out the needs of the entire Department,
plus Botany. We wound up with a building twice as long as
the Arnold Laboratory and eight stories high. Esthetically we
had no enthusiasm for such a monster on the Brown campus,
and we found none elsewhere. Furthermore, the possibility of
obtaining the funds for such a large structure seemed pretty
remote. Consequently, we decided to go at it piecemeal and
plan a building especially designed for the fields most urgently
needing new space. The result is "Unit I" for which we are
about to break ground. We fervently hope it will be rapidly
followed by Units 2, 3, 4, and 5 to house the rest of the Life
We have planned to retain Partridge Hall, Walter Hall, and
Angell Hall, and to relinquish the Annex at 91 Waterman St.
only reluctantly. But, most important, we had hoped to reno-
vate the Arnold Laboratory, completely modernizing it in
every respect so that it might be serviceable for some years to
come. However, when it was examined for this purpose by
the architect, the project was pronounced impossible. The
building had gone up under a code now obsolete, and for a
teaching and research program far simpler than ours of today.
Alterations to fit the new building code and make it adequate
for our present purposes would be of necessity so drastic and
costly that they would be impractical, and even if undertaken,
the desired objectives might not be attained.
With this plan now abandoned, we are marking time for a
few months to see what direction the future development of
the Life Sciences will take. It seems incredible that a building
that we moved into 45 years ago with so much pride and
satisfaction should today be so completely obsolete. But at
that time no one could have foreseen the progress that has
been made in all aspects of science and technology.
At Long Last, a Modern Center
The new building will house the teaching and research lab-
oratories of Biochemistry, Physiology. Microbiology^ and
Plant Physiology. It will occupy the space along the east side
of Brown St. from Waterman to Angell St. The site will ne-
cessitate the closing of the end of Fones Alley and providing
a new outlet to Angell St. The plans for the building have
been drawn up by Conrad Green '36 of the firm of Robinson,
Green and Beretta, the same firm that planned the residences
of the Rhode Island School of Design on the hill along Water-
The new building will cost, fully equipped, around $1,800,-
000. Of this $560,000 is provided by a grant from the Rocke-
feller Foundation, and $565,070 by a grant from the Health
Research Facilities program of the United States Public
Health Service. The rest must come from funds of the
University allocated from the unrestricted gift from the estate
of John L. Given '34. An additional grant of $46,200 from
the U.S.P.H.S. has been received to provide research equip-
Modern in every respect, including air-conditioning through-
out, we suspect the building will look as luxurious to our
contemporaries as the Arnold Laboratory did to those of
1914. However, it is no more so than many similar labora-
tories that have been built and are being built in response to
the same pressure in progressive institutions throughout the
country. It will have four stories and a basement, and a fifth
story entirely occupied by the machinery for air-conditioning,
ventilation of fume-hoods, and animal rooms, emergency
generators and similar purposes. In the basement will be a
modern stock room and supply department for the whole
department to replace the crowded and inefficient one in the
Arnold Laboratory, also some animal rooms and a shop.
The four teaching and research floors will provide space
for the programs of eight Faculty members with their teaching
and research assistants, their graduate students, and their post-
doctoral fellows. It will then be possible for them to develop
aspects of their programs that are urgently necessary if
Brown is to keep pace with other institutions but impossible
without such facilities. Obviously we are all looking forward
eagerly to the completion of the building.
BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY
A SALVAGE JOB called o Brown Egyptologist to this 3700-year-old temple. (Photo courtesy Oriental Institute, University of Chicago.)
Before the Waters Bury It
A Brown University Professor is in Egypt to aid an in-
ternational effort to preserve the ancient monuments of
Nubia. When the Aswan High Dam, now under construction
on the Nile River, is completed, a great lake will cover this
area of Egypt and Sudan, submerging the ancient temples,
tombs and monuments forever.
Dr. Ricardo A. Caminos, Associate Professor of Egyptology
at Brown and an expert in hieroglyphic texts, left in October
to spend five months in Nubia, an area encompassing the
southern part of the United Arab Republic and the northern
part of the Republic of the Sudan along the Nile River. He
is one of many scholars from various nations in the world
who are responding to the appeal made last March by the
director general of UNESCO. At the request of the United
Arab Republic and Sudan, UNESCO is sponsoring a cam-
paign to record and to save the enormous wealth of archeo-
logical material that will be completely under water by 1968.
The new dam, of utmost significance for the economic
welfare of both countries, will create an artificial lake 300
miles long and up to 546 feet deep, stretching from just above
the dam site at Aswan up to the Third Cataract in the Sudan.
Plans call for the removal of several significant monuments
intact to new locations and for the erection of a wall or dam
around others, particularly the most valuable, Dr. Caminos
said. But there are many other monuments along the Nile,
such as hillside carvings, caves and inscriptions, that cannot
be dismantled or would be too costly to wall in, he continued.
Scholars hope to study, measure, record and eventually pub-
lish complete details on these sites.
Working in the area will be archeologists, anthropologists
and geologists as well as Egyptologists, Dr. Caminos added.
"We don't expect any startling discoveries from an artistic
point of view," he said, "but you never can tell what will
come up in an excavation."
Dr. Caminos has gone first to the ancient city of Buhen
near Wadi Haifa in Sudan, where he will copy the reliefs
and hieroglyphic inscriptions of two temples, one built in
1800 B.C., the other in 1500 B.C. (The photo shows the
temple south of Buhen.) Later he will move to Kasr Ibrim
in Egypt to study a group of caves that were used as shrines
and are decorated with extensive reliefs. The Brown profes-
sor will make copies of the reliefs by taking actual-size rub-
bings, which he then traces while on location.
Dr. Caminos will be working in conjunction with the Egypt
Exploration Society of London, of which he has been a
member since 1945. Only two or three other American
universities, in addition to Brown, are sending scholars to
Nubia. Dr. Caminos has been a member of the Brown faculty
since 1952 and is the author of two books on hieroglyphic
writing. He has previously headed expeditions of the Egypt

By ERNEST DICKINSON
WHEN the first space ship leaves for Mars, the Japan
Astronautical Society expects to have a distinguished
passenger aboard. Professor Josiah S. Carberry has volun-
teered to look over terrain there with a view to starting
Astral University for interplanetary students. But those who
know this great scientist well doubt that he will appear at
blast-off time. Carberry, they say, has one flaw in his char-
acter. He never keeps appointments.
An eccentricity of genius, his friends plead. After all, look
what Josiah has offered the world! Steel sails for boats.
Chlorophilly for horses, and a rotatable laboratory for con-
ducting revolutionary experiments. Certainly no one but Car-
berry has ever been referred to in the Lawndale, Calif.,

Skeptics may ask if this old boy really exists at all. The
answer is, yes, Virginia, there is a Josiah Carberry. He is the
intellectuals' Paul Bunyan. And he probably will live, if not
forever, at least as long as his devotees can slip stories about
him past unsuspecting newspaper and magazine editors.
Josiah Stinkney Carberry, P.C.D. (Doctor of Psycho-
Ceramics) was bom full-grown on the Brown campus in
1929. That was the year an instructor there put a bogus
notice on the bulletin board. It read: "On Thursday at 8:15
p.m. in Sayles Hall, J. S. Carberry will give a lecture on
'Archaic Greek Archeological Revetments in connection with
Ionian Phonology.' " Another staff member, detecting the
fraud, penciled in the word "not" before "give."
Somehow, this bit of whimsy caught the imagination of a
group of faculty members. It was too good a joke to drop.
Planted news items began appearing in Rhode Island papers
about lectures Carberry was never to deliver. Social columns
recorded his travels. Letters to the editor publicized the
professor's strong, if somewhat eccentric, views on everything
from stuffing puffins to the cause and cure of aboriginal
"Like a Contagious Lunacy"
The creation of Carberry myths started in a modest way.
But, like a contagious lunacy, it spread among Brown alumni
everywhere until today even periodicals in such countries as
Japan and Burma are being used to further the legend. Clip-
pings, as well as telegrams, letters, and postcards signed by
Josiah, are arriving continually at Brown from all parts of the
world. There, retired Professor Benjamin C. Clough, curator
of Carberriana, sorts them and puts the best on display in
the university library.
Early in his career, Carberry acquired a wife, Laura, two
grown daughters, Lois and Patricia, and a friend named
Truman Grayson. The latter suffers from an affliction so rare
that medical authorities believe it strikes only once in any
Of all Josiah's accomplishments, none is so widely known
as his research in psycho-ceramics (psycho meaning roughly
"cracked"; ceramics, "pots"). Newspapers in all sections of
the country have printed announcements of lectures Carberry
planned to give on this, his favorite subject. But the professor,
notoriously absent-minded, never appeared to deliver any of
The interests of this versatile genius range over all fields
of science. The Martha's Vineyard Gazette, for example,
printed Josiah's suggestion for making steel sails, counter-
balanced by the centerboard. When the centerboard goes
up, the sail comes down, and vice versa. "Not being a nautical
man myself," wrote Carberry with characteristic modesty,
"I may have left a few practical kinks to be worked out."
The professor carries diffidence to an extreme where his
own inventions are concerned. In a note to Clough, Carberry
gave his son-in-law. Sir Conrad Bleet,^ credit for devising
* The Carberry geometric system, according to the Brown Uni-
versity Alumni Monthly, is based on a four dimensional theory
that a triangle has two hypotenuses and only one leg to stand on.
- Professor Clough ascribes this fault not so much to indifference
as to Professor Carberry's acute distaste for being watched.
" There is a record of still another relative. Blossom Plum. She
served a brief apprenticeship as a can opener in the Brown Uni-
versity kitchen but disappeared in a blue haze in 1937.
Chlorophilly for horses and a rotatable laboratory for revolu-
tionary inventions. Yet, no one who knew Josiah could fail
to see in these two discoveries the mark of his peculiar genius.
A man of great social coitscience, Carberry has taken up
the cause of returning ancestral lands to the American
Indians, particularly the Madison Avenue acreage of Man-
hattan Island. In fact, according to Dean John W. Spaeth of
Wesleyan, who was one of the original Carberrians at Brown,
Josiah not long ago agreed to appear before the Connecticut
Legislature on behalf of the Podunk tribe. He said he would
suggest that all of South Windsor and most of East Hartford
be given back to the Indians. Unfortunately, he was called
away before the Legislature convened.
Light of Foot and Light of Heart
Friends of the professor give varying descriptions of his
appearance, but all agree that Josiah must be light afoot.
Otherwise how could he send a card from Rome one day and
New Hampshire State Prison the next? How could he be in
THE POLICE GAZETTE refused this likeness of Lois Carberry in 1911 on the
grounds that it is bad luck to put one's beanie on the bed.
SOME of Patricia's most daring modern verse was inspired afield. "One

Cape Canaveral checking on missile activities on Monday
morning and that very night write a note to Clough from Old
Gaza in Palestine that he was excavating to prove that Sam-
son used not the jawbone of an ass, but a thighbone, in his
assault on the Phihstines?
Carberry is, in fact, a record world traveler. On a recent
holiday jaunt, made possible through the cooperation of
Brown alumni around the world, Josiah circled the equator in
one day. Picture cards to Clough showed by their postmarks
that the professor had made the air trip in 24 hours. When
a detractor hinted at payola and suggested that some founda-
tion must have financed the jaunt, an injured Carberry com-
plained to the Brown Alumni Monthly. ""There is no founda-
tion for this report."
Josiah loves to go visiting. For example, the Manhasset,
N. Y., Press, describing Carberry as the author of ""Pot Shards
of the Amazon Delta," told of his social call on Brown
alumni there. The Weatport Town Crier reported his stay in
that town, identifying him as a "noted lecturer and pe-
nologist." He turns up often at colleges and universities where
Brown men have gone. He is invariably alone. Laura is most
tolerant. "Ever since my husband got his toupee," she wrote
ten years ago, ""he has renewed his youth like the eagle."
The Wesleyan catalogue lists J. Stinkney Carberry as living
at 405 Judd Hall, the school's museum. Not long ago. Pro-
fessor Lawrence E. Gemienhardt of that university saw in a
news item that the Japan Astronautical Society was taking
orders for land on Mars. Gemienhardt wrote to the group
suggesting that the psycho-ceramics professor would like to be
delegated to establish Astral University on that planet. Would
the Japanese organization be interested in supporting this
venture'? If so, would the members be kind enough to give
him a grant of land? '"Carberry would send the money him-
self," Gemienhardt wrote, "but he is absolutely impecunious.
The professor and his wife Laura haven't had a yen in years."

BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY
THE FAMILY REUNION was always
a time of great good humor among
the Carberrys until Josioh reached
his majority and began his wander-
ings. This was the last reunion, it is
said, which he did not attend.
not only the Astronautical Society's approval of the plan,
but also a document certifying that Carberry would have
"full rights to 100,000 tsubo of land (about 80 acres)
reserved on Mars when the development project is realized."
The tract is near the planet's equator. Kishida, it seems, had
wrongly translated "psycho-ceramics" in the original letter to
mean "molding of the minds"; and the Tokyo newspaper
Asahi Shimbun, reporting the transaction, commented that the
professor appeared to be very serious about the proposed seat
of higher learning.
Mrs. Carberry Describes Her Plight
Meanwhile, back in Carberry land, Josiah had started com-
posing an Alma Mater hymn for the university. It began
"Each satellite in the sky knows the reason why, dear Astral,
we love you . . ."
If the professor did go to Mars, he would almost certainly
leave Laura behind. By now Josiah's wife should be ac-
customed to her husband's solitary goings and comings, but
they have always been a source of confusion to her. In a
typical letter, she wrote to a friend: "My husband has disap-
peared again. At first it was natural enough. He was on a trip
to do some work in chiromancy which he took up last month.
Then he came back. Then he went away again. Then he came
back again. Then again he went away again, and then again
he came back again. I get quite dizzy as I write this . . ."
Carberrians often get telegrams from Laura. They usually
have one thing in common — an incorrect use of personal
pronouns. This weakness of hers is said to cause the pro-
fessor untold embarrassment, especially when Laura ends her
communications, as she always does, with "the usual greetings
from Josiah and I."
Whatever her shortcomings, though, Laura is not disloyal.
A newspaper, in printing an announcement of a lecture Car-
berry was never to give, misspelled his name. The professor's
wife was furious. She immediately wrote to the editor, "I
think it's simply awful that my husband's name was spelled
wrong. There's no man whose name means as much to him as
my husband's to his."
The Carberry daughters, Lois and Patricia, revel in the
great outdoors. Newspaper society items regularly report that
Lois is leaving by plane for the Peruvian Andes to shoot
tufted puffins.* More recently, though, her interest has shifted
to ptarmigans and pteropods, which, Lois writes, "I hunt
The girls have inherited their father's literary flair. Setting
one of Josiah's more abstruse themes to verse and music, Pa-
tricia will have published privately in the fall a ballad type
song, "Love Is a Psycho-Ceramic Thing." She writes in a mod-
ern vein — not surprising, perhaps for a card-carrying member
of the Amalgamated Poets of Southeastern Illinois. By con-
trast, Lois composes verse in the strictly classical tradition.
She favors memorial odes. But both women have been able to
get poetry printed in the less discriminating publications. If
Lois is rather stodgy in her literary style, she makes up for it
in private life. No one has been able to keep track of the
number of men she has married. Among the off-beat weddings
reported in countless newspapers was her union with "a Maori
chieftain in Auckland, New Zealand. The Rev. Sylvester
Travesty performed the double ring ceremony. "«
The daughters, like their parents, send picture postcards
galore. One of the classics of Carberriana shows the Hotel
Statler in Boston with the caption, "1,300 rooms and bath."
On the back Lois had written, "The bath gets terribly crowded
but, after all, better dirty than hungry."
If the professor himself has been able to devote little time
to his family in the seclusion of Bullwinkle Farm, the famous
Carberry estate in Middletown, Conn., his research, inven-

One of America's oldest, the Brown
group offers a fine new recording
AT RIGHT, Director Erich Kunzel.
COLLEGE SONGS and choral groups have been an integral
part of the Brown tradition for many years," says the
blurb on the jacket for the new long-playing, high fidelity re-
cording by the Brown University Glee Club. "Andrew Law,
of the Class of 1775, organized one of the first singing groups
on campus and later became one of the country's first com-
posers. By 1826 the Harmonic Society of undergraduates was
holding regular rehearsals in University Hall and performing
in the Providence vicinity.
"The first roster of the Brown University Glee Club ap-
peared in Vol. 1, No. 1 of the Brown Paper, published in
1857. The Glee Club, now in its second century of singing,
continues the tradition that Brown is a 'singing college,' and
has become nationally recognized for its appearances. . . .'"
In his second year as Director of the Glee Club, Erich
Kunzel has suddenly found himself its historian, too. His
present quest is the oldest printed program of any Glee Club
concert, and the other day he came in happy with an item
he had discovered in Archives over in the John Hay. He held
in his hand the program for a "Concert of the Brown Glee
Club, Horse Guard Armory, Monday Evening, June 14th,
1869."" That in itself, he said, goes a long way toward docu-
menting the suspicion that the Brown University Glee Club
may be the oldest college glee club in continuous existence,
but he believes he may find something even earlier. By no
means has he stopped digging. An 1872 review speaks of the
"pleasant singing" of the student group, and there is a refer-
ence to its traveling (probably with 25 to 30 men) and being
"one of the best."
Even a Solo for Zither
The offerings in the old Armory (which still stands on
Benefit St., although no longer identified with "Horse Guards")
are interesting to note: There were "Old College Songs,"
"Woodbirds' Song," "Honor to the Soldier" (perhaps in def-
erence to the auditorium), a "Military March," "Wanderers'
Return," and "Banish Oh! Maiden" (the punctuation is fol-
lowed dutifully). Featured voices? Of course: "Larboard
Watch," a duet for tenor and baritone, and a solo for bass;
"Bells of Salzburg" was a solo for zither.
"Bingo (an old marching song)" was probably one which
continues in the Glee Club repertory and is sung on the new
recording as "Here's to Good Old Brown." And the Alma
Mater was then listed as "Old Brown," though Kunzel says it
is the same song.
Today's Brown University Glee Club is composed of 60
upperclassmen, selected after experience with the Canticum
(Freshman) Glee Club. In addition to its nationwide radio
and television performances, it has sung in the concert halls
of many major cities: in New York's Town Hall and the
Waldorf Astoria; the Arts Club and Strand Theater in Chi-
cago; Symphony Hall in Boston: and the National Press Club,
Senate Rotunda, and National Cathedral in Washington. D. C.
On occasion, the Glee Club has sung for vacationers at such
resorts as the Homestead in Hot Springs and at White Sul-
phur Springs' Greenbrier.
The regular concert year includes performances with the
choruses from women's colleges and with symphony orches-
tras. During spring recess, the Glee Club takes its annual tour
to various parts of the United States. Last season its travels
permitted concerts in Washington, the Carolinas, Atlanta,
New Orleans, and Dallas. One date for the 1961 tour is that
of April 4 in Montreal.
Erich Kunzel is one reason for the Glee Club's present
estate at Brown. A 1957 Dartmouth graduate, he has since
had advanced study in music at Harvard and Brown. Since
1956 he has been a member of the Domaine School of Con-
ductors, Pierre Monteux, Master. He was a conductor with
the Santa Fe (N. M.) Opera Company in its premiere season

Most Brown men will first play Side One, which ofliers the

with "Here's to Good Old Brown," the traditional item re-

There are five songs in the "Football Medley": "Ever True

R. Palmer '90 and music by Jules Jordan, honorary '95. Long

"Bring the Victory to Brown," by Don Jackson; here it is
brought to life to retell the story of the naming of the Uni-
versity in a sprightly way that may surprise. The Alma Mater
of James A. DeWolf, 1861, is the inevitable and fitting finale
to this side.
We think Brown men will be delighted with the new lift
given to their old songs. The arrangements are fresh, though
with enough respect to tradition; the voices are disciplined
but enthusiastic (not without quality, too); and the recording
is excellent. Before the old grad says, "That isn't the way we
used to sing it," he should allow for a few mutations since
his day on the Hill. Time, as well as the arranger, has con-
tributed to the minor variants in melody, rhythm, and even
wording. Though one may be alert to a new phrase here and
there, one should grant that the original lyrics might bring
an occasional wince if some editor had not tampered with
them to make them fit a later idiom. It is good to hear the
songs well sung again, though some of the words are less
quaint today and some of the harmonies far more sophisti-
cated on this disc. These modern versions of these "our songs
of cheer" have been tried on many a concert audience, and
Brunonians continue to respond to their appeal. And so will
the listener beside his record-player.
It is in the concert selections, though, that the Glee Club
shows its real mettle, and admirable, exciting music it pro-
vides on Side Two of the new record. Six numbers from re-
cent programs show the Club at its best; "Hodie, Christus
Natus Est," by Healey Willan. The Christmas spiritual, "Mary
Had a Baby," arranged by Alice Parker and Robert Shaw.
"Suabian Folk Song," in the Brahms-Davison arrangement.
"Oh, I Got Plenty o' Nuttin' " from Gershwin's Porgy and
Bess. Loboda's arrangement of the spiritual, "Go Tell It oh
But our favorite is the "Dirge for Two Veterans" in the
Gustav Hoist setting of Walt Whitman's words. Here the
University Brass Choral under Martin Fischer provides the
accompaniment, and the performance has never failed to
move a Glee Club audience.
There's Companion Activity, Too
Andrew Law would be proud of his musical descendants
on College Hill today. The amazing thing is that the Glee
Club is only one of so many first-rate musical organizations
at Brown. William Dinneen's Sayles Hall Choir we have
long enjoyed and admired, and HoUis Grant's Chapel Choir
is a promising newcomer. We remember Martin Fischer's
delight at the first reading of Brahms and Mozart Symphonies
at the initial 1960 rehearsal of the Orchestra. His Band, by
the way, is now ready to undertake concert appearances in
nearby New England. If you have a chance to hear the third
annual performance of Ron Nelson's "Christmas Story,"
don't miss that thrilling event. And, of course, it all stems
from the leadership of Prof. Arlan Coolidge as Chairman of
the Music Department and the breaking down of catalogue
boundaries between curricular and extracurricular.
Our notice of the Glee Club's record is not to minimize
any other companion activity in Brown's musical life. The
rest have their achievements and their high spirit. We speak
at some length of the record because it is only one aspect
of a many-sided vitality, which it illustrates. But, after all,
this is pretty tangible: you can take it into your home.
The Life and Times
of Professor Carberry
(Continued from page 13)
tions, travels, letters to the editor, and social work with the
Indians have surely given him a valid excuse to neglect
friends. Yet, Truman Grayson, with his strange malady,
has always found Carberry ready to rush to his aid.
No one knows much of Grayson's early life except that he
majored in shotput at Tidewater Polytechnic Institute.' His
rare affliction made its nascent appearance in the spring of
1936. While Grayson was breeding asps in Springfield, Mass.,
one of them bit him. He dismissed the injury as just an acci-
dent. A few weeks later Grayson was shad fishing at the
Enfield Dam when an alewife nipped him. Still the two events
were passed off as a coincidence.
But shortly afterwards, while he was visiting the Bronx
Zoo, first an anteater and then an armadillo sank their teeth
into the calf of his leg. The tragic pattern became clear.
Grayson was fated to go through life being bitten by creatures
whose names began with "A," thus making him apathetic.
In April, 1943, a telegram arrived for Clough describing how
an aurochs had taken a swipe at Grayson in Atlantic City. In
South Africa it was an aardvark; in Peru, an alpaca; in
Hawaii, an aaianuhsakane. But Carberry, to this day, never
fails to speed to Grayson's bedside, bearing perhaps a com-
forting ode from Patricia or one of Lois's ptarmigan ptarts.
The Ceramic Jugs Are Appropriate
Although Josiah never shows up to collect it, a steady
stream of mail arrives for him at the Brown Faculty Club —
Bible tracts, baby food samples, birth control literature, a
bill for a subscription to Playboy.
Nowadays, there are other reminders of the professor at
Brown. This staid old university has set aside every Friday the
13th, no matter what the month, as Josiah S. Carberry Day.
Appropriately enough, ceramic brown jugs are placed around
the campus. As soon as anyone realizes it is Friday the 13th,
he is supposed to reach into his pocket and donate whatever
change is there to the Carberry Fund. According to Clough,
the money will be used for the library with one proviso:
"Only such books will be bought with the proceeds as Pro-
fessor Carberry might or might not approve of."
The Alumni Monthly, which has faithfully recorded Josiah's
exploits from the start, promoted the holiday. It grumbled,
though, that some people were failing to get into the proper
spirit. They were emptying their pockets every Thursday the
12th. Who suggested the fund? The professor himself. He
proposed in a letter that "alumni, students, faculty members,
friends of the university, and other unfortunates" donate their
small change anonymously. He requested that the fund be set
up "in memory of my future late wife, Laura Carberry."
As might be expected, this gesture left Laura overcome by
emotion and almost — but not quite — at a loss for words.
"Thank you, thank you, dear Josiah," she wrote in a public
tribute. "I have never known a man whose attachment to his
wife was as strong as yours to mine."
' He was on a scholarship that required him to faithfully wind
the institute's 8-day clock.
How They Happened to See
the Brown Film in France
VISITOR TO CRETEIL: Tony Ittleson '60 with Dr.
Theodore C. Merrill, 64 years his senior at Brown.
Other patients at the hospital now know about
the college, too.
WHILE THOUSANDS have seen the new Brown University
Film, it is safe to say that it has given no one more
pleasure than Dr. Theodore C. Merrill "96. And he can thank
H. A. Ittleson '60, though he can hardly thank him more
than he has already.
Tony Ittleson left for Europe right after graduation, full
of enthusiasm for Brown and with a special undertaking to
arrange a showing of the Bicentennial movie, "Succession of
Men," before the alumni in France. He little realized how
big an undertaking this would prove, and his troubles began
When the print arrived, his first problem was with customs
oflacials. They had a notion that "any film valued at $150 was
being imported either to make money or serve some other
sinister purpose." Ittleson ended up by showing them the
movie, and two and a half hours was devoted in getting its
release. "Unfortunately, I was unable to solicit any funds
from them," Ittleson wrote Development Director Daniel W.
Earle '34 on Bastille Day.
The Brunonians in Paris are an interesting group of long-
time and short-term residents, and Ittleson set about talking
with some of them and writing to others. Some are bankers,
like Robert H. Blake '29, Branch Manager of the Guaranty
Trust of New York; William H. Reese '17, Vice-President,
and Duncan P. Reese '44, Manager, both of the Chase Man-
hattan branch. Dr. Simon J. Copans '33 is with French radio
and television. Louis M. Myers '52 is with American Express,
although out of Paris a good deal visiting its branches else-
where. Daniel G. L. Stanley, who received his Sc.M. in 1958.
is a geologist living at the Cite Universitaire. Jacques P.
Bideult '50, nephew of the former French President, is a
Director of Polak et Schwarz. Stanley Johnson '41 is one of
the Associated Press foreign correspondents. Dr. Curtis B.
Watson '38 is Assistant Executive Officer of the U.S. Educa-
tional Commission for France. Robert E. Williams '45 is a
project engineer for International Standard Engineering. Al-
fred G. Granieri '50 has a Marine Corps affiliation. This
gives an idea of their substance and diverse interests.
Summer is traditionally a period of exodus for the Parisian,
so that contacts were difficult in many cases. Some persons
were on the move for other reasons than holiday. Pembroker
Janice O'Brian, for example, left the American Embassy for
the States the day Ittleson called. Richard O. Fleischer '39,
20th Century-Fox Director, was shooting a picture in Aries
and would finish it in North Africa before returning. And so
it went. In addition to his visits, Ittleson wrote 34 letters, and
made 27 phone calls.
After all. Ittleson had other things to do in Paris, too.
But he arranged for a screening of the film in the private
projection room of 20th Century Fox, and the Paris office of
International Business Machines lent every assistance. (Presi-
dent Thomas J. Watson, Jr., '37, National Chairman of the
Brown Bicentennial Development Program, had been in
Europe — incidentally, he showed the film for some alumni
in England.) All of this Ittleson faithfully reported in frequent
letters to officials on College Hill.
A major expedition was out to Creteil, some considerable
distance outside Paris, where the new Albert Chenevier Hos-
pital is located, ministering to those with incurable diseases.
(We've already mentioned this in these pages in connection
with Dr. Theodore Merrill, one of the most respected men in
French medical circles for 50 years and now a patient in his
"When I got to the entrance and asked for Dr. Merrill,"
Ittleson wrote, "the nurse's eyes lit up, and she personally
showed me the way to his pavillion. There I asked another
BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY
nurse, and she also lit up and directed me to his room. Dr.
Merrill hopped out of his chair to greet me. We talked about
an hour about his life, music, the hospital, etc." The two, who
graduated 64 years apart, quickly became fine friends in that
The outcome of this visit was the undertaking to have the
film shown at the hospital in August. Through the coopera-
tion of the Embassy, an interpreter from the Sorbonne was
on hand to translate the commentary (we have no version
with French subtitles yet). Staff and patients crowded the
refectory to capacity for two showings, and all seemed to
take pleasure from the experience and from Dr. Merrill's
pride to have his Alma Mater presented to them. "His en-
joyment was enough to make the whole trip worthwhile,"
Ittleson said. "He loves his University." (Incidentally, the
writer, who also visited Dr. Merrill about a fortnight later,
found him still in a state of delight. "It was fine for the
University, for the film made a great hit," he recalled.)
One result of Dr. Merrill's interest was a showing of the
movie at the American Embassy in Paris before some 50
persons, including the Cultural Attache. A cable from Ittle-
son reported: "U.S. Information Service wants to have the
film. Would like this copy and permission to edit and use."
(The University offered to provide a better print.) "So you
see," Dr. Merrill wrote later, "there has been grand kudos
for Brown in the land of Gaul." He headed his letter:
L'Annexe Francaise de la Propagande Universitaire.
Ittleson, having demonstrated what one young graduate
can do for his University, departed for a week's more relaxed
holidays in the Greek isles.
A Chafee ''Reading Terrace
MEMBERS of the family of the late Professor Zechariah
Chafee, Jr. '07, well-known attorney and scholar, have
made in his memory a gift of the Reading Terrace for the
proposed new library building at Brown University. President
Barnaby C. Keeney, who announced receipt of the gift last
month, said that the terrace will be a paved area outside the
Humanities Reading Room, with a western view of the City
"This is a singularly appropriate gift in memory of one
whose life was devoted to the scholarly pursuits and whose
love of good books and literature marked his life," President
Keeney said. "It is also appropriate that his memory be
honored in a project associated with the humanities, because
Zechariah Chafee, Jr. was one of the world's greatest prac-
titioners of the qualities which typify man at his best — tol-
erance, understanding, sympathy, and appreciation of one's
fellow men for what they are."
Those who have joined in making the gift are Professor
Chafee's widow, his daughters, Anne Chafee Brien and Ellen
Chafee Tillinghast; his son, Zechariah Chafee, III; his sisters
and brothers; together with the Mary Dexter Fund, a char-
itable trust established by the parents of Professor Chafee.
Professor Chafee received an honorary Doctor of Laws

ing his graduation in 1907, he became associated with the
Builders Iron Foundry for three years, and then attended
Harvard Law School, where he received his LL.B. degree in
1913. He was associated with the Providence law firm of
Tillinghast and Collins for three years and became an Assist-
ant Professor of Law at Harvard in 1916. He was made a full
Professor of the Law School in 1919 and Langdell Professor
of law in 1938. In 1950, Harvard appointed him a "University
Professor," a post that gave him freedom "to work on any
of the frontiers of knowledge and with no limitations upon the
field of his teaching."
After his retirement in 1956, Dr. Chafee was made one
of two Lowell Television Lecturers, a new Faculty designa-
tion created to show Harvard's continuing interest in educa-
tional television, to record 16 weekly talks on "The Constitu-
tion and Human Rights" broadcast over Boston's educational
station WGBH-TV. (The University recently received tape

AFTER the first six games. Coach John
- McLaughrj's football Bruins had a
1-5 record. Since the last report the Bears
had bowed to Penn (36-7), defeated
Rhode Island (36-14), and lost to Prince-
ton (54-21). But they rallied to delight
Homecomers with their first Ivy victor>^
in a tense 7-6 battle with Cornell.
There was nothing wrong with the situa-
tion that an additional supply of football
players, especially in the line, wouldn't
cure. McLaughry's thin squad was further
weakened in mid season by the loss of
Dave Tyler, Paul Murphy, Jack Mancuso,
Bill Wood, and Joe Dyer. Tyler, the 6-5,
220-pQund Junior star, left college. Mur-
phy, Tyler's replacement at the outside
corner spot on defense, dislocated his el-
bow in the Princeton game. Mancuso
broke his hand at Penn, while Wood and
Dyer, a pair of hefty tackles, left the
The offense in the Rhode Island and
Princeton games picked up considerably.
One of the reasons was that Sophomore
Jon Meeker was learning how to run from
the tailback position. He has good speed,
power, and balance, and should be an out-
standing runner for Brown over the next
two seasons. Another reason for the bet-
ter offensive showing was that the down-
field blocking began to jell.
Penn }6, Brown 7
Brown scored its first touchdown of the
season and led Penn, 7-0, through the first
period of their battle at Franklin Field. The
Bears recovered a bad pass from center
as Penn was offside. The Penn backs, as-
suming that Brown was also offside, didn't
bother to chase the ball. Sophomore end,
Dennis Witkowski, fell on the loose pig-
skin on the Quaker 36. It took the Bruins
15 plays to go the 64 yards. Two passes.
Jack Rohrbach to Dick Laine, helped set
up the score, and Bobby Myles drove
across from the one. Ray Barry kicked
the extra point.
Penn fought back in the second period.
The Bruins stopped one drive on their
one, but the Quakers struck quickly for
two scores before intermission and a 14-7
half time lead. Brown had two good
drives going in the second half hut
couldn't score, while Penn hit pay dirt
once in the third period and twice more
in the fourth.
Coach McLaughry, while not satisfied
with the over-all performance, especially
in tackling and pass defense, wasn't com-
pletely discouraged. "We did some things
real well, especially on offense. Our best
players were a pretty tired group in the
last half due to the steamy, 80-degree
heat, and Penn was able to keep poiu'ing
a supply of fresh units in and out. With

On the plus side was the running of
Meeker and Barry, the passing of Rohr-
bach (10 for 20), the defensive play of
Gary Graham, and the all-around play of
Witkowski, who caught six passes, re-
covered a fumble, and was voted the
outstanding Sophomore in the game. Penn
had the edge in first downs (22-10),
yards rushing (243-85), and yards through
the air (130-116).
Browti 36, Rhode Island 14
In a game that was rated a toss up by
the "experts," Brown scored early and
often to turn back the University of
Rhode Island, 36-14. This was Brown's
highest scoring total since the 47-6 victory
over URl in 1958 and its second highest
since 1954. Further, the Bears' total
yardage, 378. was the best offensive dis-
play by a Brown team since the 416 yards
rolled up against Colgate in 1958.
Seven Brown players figured in the
scoring, as forward passes produced three
tallies. Bob Auchy, Junior guard, started
the parade by recovering a Ram fumble
on the nine early in the first period. On
fourth down, halfback Myles swept to his
left and threw a running pass into the
arms of Lane in the end zone.
Twenty seconds after the second period
started, Brown struck again. Rhody at-
tempted a flat pass, but corner linebacker
Murphy anticipated the move, intercepted
the pass, and romped 22 yards into the
end zone. Murphy also started the next
scoring drive by recovering a Rhode Is-
land fumble on his own 43. Six plays
later Rohrbach tossed 23 yards to Roger
Cirone for the score.
Rhode Island gave the fans a thrill by
scoring one second before the end of the
half and then adding another quick touch-
down in the third period. However, they
missed a try for a two-point conversion
after the second touchdown and Brown
led 22-14, rather than a possible 22-16.
Starting from their 16, Brown drove 84
yards for the score that clinched the game.
Meeker was the star runner on this drive,
getting off several good gains and then
going the final 23 yards around his own
left end behind some beautiful blocking.
Midway through the final period Rohrbach
hit John Phipps in the end zone with a
nine-yard pass to complete the scoring.
Barry booted four extra points and Myles
ran for a two-point conversion.
Much of Brown's troubles offensively
in the earlier games had stemmed from the
fact that they could not balance a capable
ruiuiing attack to go with their air game.
Against Rhode Island, Brown gained 251
yards rushing to 37 and 127 yards
through the air to 136 for Rhody. Meeker
gained 103 yards rushing for Brown in 11
carries, while Barry had 89.
Princeton S4, Brown 21
For three periods. Brown was nearly
able to match the powerful Princeton
Tiger touchdown for touchdown in a
thrilling offensive display of football at
Palmer Stadium. However, in the fourth
period the overworked Brown regulars be-
gan to tire, as was the case so often all
season. Princeton, a team generously en-
dowed with football players, pushed over
three touchdowns to make the final score,
54-21. This was the highest number of
points scored against a Brown team since
Army defeated Coach Rip Engle's 1944
team, 59-7. That was the Army team of
Davis and Blanchard.
The Tigers proved to be a group of
opportunists. They turned three Brown
fumbles and a pass interception into four
touchdowns. Another Bruin bobble on the
Princeton four deprived Brown of an al-
most sure touchdown and a chance to
make the final score a bit closer.
Princeton scored twice in the first period
but Brown came back before the quarter
ended to go 85 yards in 1 1 plays, with
Barry running across from the Tiger
seven. In the second period, Princeton
scored again to make it 21-7, but the
Bears bounced back to go 76 yards in two
plays. After Myles, on a quick trap, raced
58 yards. Barry used a good straight arm,
broke out around his left end, and raced
1 8 for the score.
Princeton led, 27-14 at the half, and
each team scored once in the third period.
The Tigers scored first, but Brown came
back on a nine-play drive that started with
a 53-yard return of a kickoff by Meeker
BROWN ALU.1»»NI MONTHLY
and ended with Sophomore quarterback
Dennis Hauflaire tossing nine yards to
Meeker. Barry converted after all three
Princeton had an edge in first downs
(20-16), yards rushing (265-204), and in
passing (174-85). Coach McLaughry
said, "I thought our offense in this game
looked as good as it has all season. We
moved the ball on the ground with ease,
though our passing was not as sharp as it
had been. However, on defense, we just
couldn't cope with their tremendous speed.
It forced us to play them practically man-
to-man, and over the long haul they
simply beat us on personnel."
Barry scored two touchdowns and
rushed for 69 yards. Myles had his long
58-yard sprint and Meeker picked up 40
yards, in addition to his 53-yard kickoff
return. The runs by Myles and Meeker
were by far the best displays of broken
field running seen by Brown backs in re-
cent years, all the more encouraging in
that Meeker is a Sophomore and Barry
and Myles are Juniors.
Brown 7, Cornell 6
Scoring early and then holding off a
series of savage Cornell counter attacks.
Brown upset the Big Red, 7-6, in a thrilling
Homecoming game at Brown Field. The
victory was Brown's first in Ivy competi-
tion this season and was the eighth Home-
coming triumph in the last nine years.
Both teams came into the game minus
a number of their top operators. Cornell,
in particular, was hurting in the backfield,
with three of its first string backs on the
sidelines. However, Coach Lefty James
still had enough manpower to employ two
complete units against the thinly-manned
Bruins. That depth, plus a strong frontier,
made the Big Red a slight favorite.
Both teams had a number of fine op-
portunities. Brown gave up the ball four
times on fumbles and once on a pass in-
terception. Cornell, not to be outdone, al-
lowed the alert Bears to pick off three of
their aerials. Brown's touchdown was set
up on an interception; Cornell's on a
Actually, Brown's first opportunity came
in the opening minutes of the game when
Capt. Billy Packer partially blocked a
Cornell punt, and the Bruins took over on
the Cornell 30. A fumble ended this
threat, but three plays later the Bears were
back knocking on the door after Roger
Cirone intercepted a Cornell pass on the
44 and returned it 18 yards to the 26.
The Bruins drove to the touchdown in
three plays. Jack Rohrbach's 14-yard pass
to end Dick Laine carried to the 12. Ray
Barry cut through center to the 9, then
took a handoff from Rohrbach and swept
his own left end for the score. On this
play he was hit by two Cornell defenders
on the two, but the 195-pound fullback
merely bowled them over and carried them
with him into the end zone. The time was
5:40. Barry's vital conversion attempt was

no less than five deep Cornell penetrations.
Shortly after its touchdown, Cornell was
back on the Brown 20 with a second and
one situation before key tackles by Soph-
omore tackle Bill Savicki and Senior wing-
man Jim Thompson threw them way back.
Just before halftime, linebacker Gary Gra-
ham picked off a Cornell pass on his 14
and the 210-pound guard chugged to the
Cornell 40 to get his team out of a bad
Early in the third period, Cornell started
again on the Brown 26 after recovering a
fumble. In four plays they were on the
Brown 8. With a third and four situation,
Myles and Junior guard John Lavino
stopped Tom Holland after a two-yard
gain. Then, Laine dropped off the line and
broke up Holland's fourth down pass in
the end zone.
Midway through the fourth period, the
Big Red marched 70 yards to the Brown
7 before losing the ball. Key tackles inside
the 10 were made by Sophomore center
John Arata, Senior tackle Harry Swanger,
Junior tackle Levi Trumbull, Myles, and

touchdown, Cornell intercepted a Rohr-
bach pass on the two. Five plays later they
had a first down on the Brown 25. The
Brown team seemed to be tiring, and the
Big Red line was in command. However.
Graham, who had left the game earlier
with an injured leg, came off the bench
and made two important stops. On fourth
down from the 23 Cornell passed into the
end zone, but Cirone broke it up to shut
off this fifth Cornell advance.
Cornell was able to push the Bruins
around between the 20"s but the Bear's
men had it in the clutch. Cornell led in
first downs, 17-12, and in yards gained
rushing, 241-106. Brown had the edge in
the air with 133 yards to 67. Rohrbach
hit on 10 of 17 passes.
In addition to providing the all-impor-
tant points, Barry made many other note-
worthy contributions which were duly
recognized by his selection by the sports
writers as the outstanding back of the
game. Playing the entire 60 minutes, the
Junior fullback from Lynbrook, N. Y.,
got away several fine punts under extreme
pressure, gained 52 yards in 15 rushing
attempts, and played a sound defensive
game. Graham, a tower of strength all
season in the Brown line, was voted the
outstanding lineman on the field.
The Freshmen Are Impressive
The Brown Freshman team, showing
promise for the future, defeated Harvard
(14-7) and Rhode Island (46-0) while
losing to Yale (23-81. Including the open-
ing game with Dartmouth, the center of
the Brown line has allowed a total of only
103 yards by rushing. The team also has
a supply of good running backs.
New England Champions, Too
COACH Ivan Fuqua's cross country team
posted a 5-0 record while defeating 10
opponents and became the first undefeated
harrier group in the 38-year-old history of
the sport on the Hill. Included in the
string were victories over Yale, for the
first time, and Dartmouth. Capt. Bobby
Lowe was the star of the season, winning
easily in all five meets.
After taking the first two starts, the
Bear runners defeated Dartmouth (20-41 )
on Brown's 4.8-mile course through the
Butler Health Center grounds. The antici-
pated duel between Lowe and his old rival.
Tom Laris of the Big Green, failed to
come off as the Bruin captain romped
home first in 23:19.8. Sophomore Tom
Gunzelman was second in 24:21, while
Laris came in third with a 24:25. Five
other Bruins finished in the top 10 — Bill
Schwab (4), Tom Jones (6), Mark Foster
(7), Bill Smith (8), and Bill Libby (9).
Brown swept the first seven places in
defeating Rhode Island, 15-50. One of the
impressive things about the meet was the
fact that only one minute and 20 seconds
separated Brown's first finisher, Lowe, and
the Bear's seventh man, Smith. Others
figuring in the Brown sweep, in order of
finish, were: Gunzelman, Schwab, Jones,
Foster, and Libby.
The Bruin runners closed the regular
season by defeating Providence College
and Holy Cross in a triangular meet. The
scores were Brown 20, Providence 54,
Holy Cross 65. Lowe set a new record of
21:29.3 for the Providence College 4.4-
mile course. He broke the old P.C. mark
by 27 seconds and finished 50 seconds
ahead of the second man, teammate
Schwab. Gunzelman came in third, giving
Brown a 1-2-3 sweep, Foster. Smith, and
libby also finished among the top 10.
The Cubs were nearly as successful.
They won four straight before losing to
Providence College in the triangular meet
BROWN a;lu7N' monthly
that closed the campaign. Ahogether, they
defeated eight opponents, including the
Yale and Dartmouth Freshmen.
Capt. Dave Farley, like Lowe, went
through the five meets undefeated. Against
P.C. and Holy Cross, he set a new record
for 2.6-mile route with a 15:13.2. Coach
Fuqua rates the lean lad from Bangor,
Me., an excellent replacement next year
for Bobby Lowe. Other runners who will
be ready to help the Varsity next fall over
the route include Dave Rumsey from Kan-
sas and Dave Hatcher from Chicago.
Freshmen Steal the Show
The soccer team, under Coach ClifT
Stevenson, was still looking for its first
victory after seven starts. Since the last
report, the team dropped decisions to
Springfield (1-0), Penn (3-U, Columbia
(1-0). and Princeton (3-1). The Freshman
team, however, was spectacular in success.
The lack of a scoring punch was the
Varsity's greatest weakness. A good de-
fense, built around Senior goalie Denny
Master, limited the opposition to an aver-
age of less than three goals a game. How-
ever, the Bruins could boot home only
five goals in the first seven contests. "The
scarcity of experienced halfbacks has
slowed our offense down," Stevenson
noted, "plus the fact that our men have
a tendency to wait for the ball to come
to them rather than banging in there for
In an effort to spark the attack, Steven-
son moved Master to the key right inside
position and placed Junior Pete Gilson in
the goal. Master got his first college goal
against Princeton, providing a third-
period tie. "Gilson has done a fine job for
us. allowing only four goals in his two
games in the net. and he is gaining valu-
able experience for next season," Steven-
son points out.
The game with Columbia marked the
first time that these two schools met on
the soccer field, for the sport was intro-
duced on Morningside Heights only a few
years ago. The Columbia coach, Joe
Molder, was an AU-American center half-
back under Stevenson at Oberlin.
After five games, the cocky Freshman
team was still undefeated. Victories were
scored against Tabor Academy (3-1),
Bradford Durfee (9-3), M.LT. (5-1),
Yale (5-2), and St. George's (8-0). Of the
30 goals, right inside Alan Young ac-
counted for 19. He picked up one against
Tabor, four in each of the games against
Bradford Durfee, M.I.T., and Yale, and
five against St. George's. Despite this fact,
the team was fairly well balanced. Bill
Long, John Haskell, Antone Singsen,
George Schweikert, Charlie Brillo, Dave
Wheaton, and Mike Healy are all con-
sidered good Varsity potential.
Young is an all-around athlete out of
South Side High School, Rockville Center,
N. Y. In his Senior season there he was
captain of the soccer, basketball, and base-
ball teams, and also competed in golf,
tennis, and track. The school paper and
the glee club also had the benefit of his
services. He was All-Nassau County in
soccer, basketball, and baseball, and he
set a Long Island soccer scoring record
with 32 goals. Coach Stevenson is pleased
to have him at Brown.

Another Grew Ancle
Sir: The fine article, "Why Encourage
Crew at Brown?" presents many angles of
the rowing sport, including the selflessness
of the crew, the fact that nobody ever
threw a crew race or tried to, etc. How-
ever, there is another good reason which I
In the spring of 1950, we held the East-
em Sprints at Annapolis. At the time I
was Head of the Department of Seaman-
ship and Navigation at the Naval Acad-
emy. Because of my interest and experi-
ence in rowing. I got the job of "Judge
of the Finish."
Before the race, my Brother-in-Law,
who is rather high up in the financial
hierarchy of a respected Ivy League col-
lege, was in my office. There were gath-
ered 10 to 15 of the nation's crew coaches,
gabbing, talking about boats, weather con-
ditions, etc., as so often happens when
time has to be killed the morning before
a crew-race afternoon. My Brother-in-
Law, with an eye on the Dollar, threw
this "slow roller" out to the crowd. "I
question the economics of crew racing," he
said. "Seems to me like a pretty expensive
sport, leaving a substantial check for some-
body to pick up."
One of the coaches (I believe it was Mc-
Millan of MIT) took the floor and covered
pretty much the same ground that John
Escher did in his article. But he had one
other angle which I think is worth report-
ing. He said: "When I entered the Uni-
versity of Washington, I was 6:7 in height,
205 in weight, and was so big and awk-
ward I couldn't make any team on the
campus. I can tell you gentlemen, if there
hadn't been a crew at the University of
Washington, I am convinced that I would
have graduated with a major lack of con-
fidence and assurance. If I couldn't make
a team, I would have missed something
"But that fall the coach of the 'long,
slick shells' sent out his call. He neither
objected to my length nor my weight nor
my awkwardness. Four years later I had

college crew but rowing in the winning
"In my opinion, crew is worthwhile, if
for no other reason, in that it affords a
great number of big men an opportunity —
their only opportunity — to participate in
college activities. As far as I am con-

Sir: In 1948 if my memory serves me
correctly, an old car with an old shell ob-

into Providence from Middletown. Del.
With that shell was a dream of making
in a few years the sport of crew a recog-
nized one at Brown UniTersity. Jim Don-
aldson began the dream and saw it grow.
The early years of the crew's efforts
would have failed were it not for one or
two inspired and energetic individuals who
also believed that the crew would in time
justify itself as an integral and recognized
part of the athletic program. With each
year the performance grew better. There
were always those willing to go out on
the river in all conditions and train for
the coming races. And then there were
wins and renewed hope of recognition for
a sport which as none other takes max-
imum teamwork. There is no star quarter-
back. There is no 9.4 dash man. There is
a team that must not make one mistake in
working together. This year's team came
as close to that ultimate in teamwork as
one can come.

fourth in the 58th Intercollegiate Rowing

BROWN a;lu>ini monthly
FIVE YEARS AGO, on August 16, 1955,
the Corporation elected me President of
Brown University. I wish now to review
these five years, not to compare them with the
preceding years, but to assess what has and what
has not been accomplished and to see where Brown
stands and where it must go.
Since the University is administered on the basis
of a fiscal and an academic year which coincide
and end on the 30th of June, I shall begin the
review on July 1, 1955, and thereby include six
weeks of Mr. Wriston's administration. This was
an important six-week period, especially in finance,
and its incliasion will skew the picture favorably.
Some of the objectives in 1955 were to improve
education and research, to raise Faculty salaries
and therewith improve the quality of the Faculty,
to give better students a better education, to enlarge
and improve facilities for education and student
life, to strengthen the finances of the institution, to
improve the administrative organization and con-
trol, and to find greater benefits for the commu-
nity and the University in our mutual relationship.
Each of these topics will be treated, and in that
By Barnaby C. Keeney
The Student and. His Courses
In 1955 there were two curricula leading to the
degree of Bachelor of Arts. An attempt to combine
these two curricula has been made. The result is
not wholly satisfactory to anyone, nor indeed has
any curriculum ever been so in an institution where
there is an imaginative Faculty and where students
are in a hurry. The Brown Faculty are continuing
their attempt to improve the curriculum, both for
the Bachelor of Arts and for the several degrees
of Bachelor of Science, to which one in Biology
has been added.
Some of the Faculty have tried to stimulate
participation in the undergraduate Honors Pro-
gram in order to encourage more students to seek a
richer education. Further, there has been some
progress in the development of independent work,
both in and outside the Honors Program. The
practice of independent study in college is the
best insurance that a student will continue to think,
to learn, and to act on his own after he leaves
college. In an effort to cause the undergraduates
to make a synthesis in their own minds of their
work in the humanities, the sciences, and the so-
cial studies, the University Courses at the upper-
class level have been developed. These may bear
fruit in the intellectual growth of the students
I now speculate about our future curriculum,
if I may do so without committing either the
members of the Faculty or the members of the
Board of Fellows. We may establish in the future
more specialized curricula for those undergrad-
uates who know what they wish to study and have
the talent to do so. The A.B. may become a general
degree for the student who desires a strong gen-
eral education rather than specialization and for
the person who has not yet found his field or
wishes to postpone specialization until graduate
school. The Sc.B. already exists in a number of
scientific departments as a specialized degree.
Something like it may be needed in the humane
and social studies for the undergraduates who
have a strong interest in those areas. More stu-
dents inevitably will find such an interest early if
the secondary schools continue to improve and
Freshmen enter at what used to be the Sophomore
level. If this change occurs, the rigors of the two
curricula must be equal, though the depth may
vary considerably. Another change may be further
growth in independent study on the part of under-
graduates moving toward a Senior year in college
largely devoted to investigation and study rather
than to courses.
During the last five years at Brown a number of
Departments have been improved, rebuilt, or re-
created. We still have some Departments that are
not so strong as they should be in a university.
There are at the moment a dozen distinguished
Departments, while others show very great prom-
ise. These Departments must be maintained and
nourished; they must be further strengthened.
A Stronger Graduate School
The Graduate School has grown in size and in
scope as the Faculty itself has improved. Graduate
students are attracted by a fine Faculty, and ap-
licants for admission seem to be increasingly better.
Whether or not students come, however, depends
in part upon the means available to finance grad-
uate study, for it is not customary in this country
for parents to carry their children beyond the
baccalaureate degree in arts and sciences, though
they habitually do so in law, medicine, and busi-
ness. This is a melancholy indication that the
American people do not yet value the intellectual
life. Opportunities of support for graduate stu-
dents have been increased both through fellow-
ships and through assistantships in teaching and
research. Thus the improved quality of the appli-
cants has resulted in a stronger and larger graduate
In the meanwhile, the University has secured
funds and implemented an intensive teacher-
training program leading to the degree of Master
of Arts in Teaching for the secondary schools.
Some 23^ million dollars has been raised for this
purpose since Professor Elmer Smith joined us.
More recently, a grant has been received to
develop an integrated five-year program leading
to the Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts. This
is intended to produce people who will be ready at
the level of the M.A. to teach in junior college
or in the first two years of college; but they will
be so advanced in the requirements for the Ph.D.
that they may reasonably be expected to complete
the degree in two more years and thereby improve
the supply of senior college teachers.
It may be anticipated that the Graduate School
will continue to grow. Indeed, Faculty resources
are not fully used at the graduate level, so that
enrollment in many Departments could grow con-
siderably with small additional expenditure and
greater efficiency. In the expectation of the further
growth and improved stature of the Graduate
School, the Faculty has undertaken a study of its
organization and government. It is the responsi-
bility of Professor Merton Stoltz, the new Asso-
ciate Dean, to coordinate the planning for the
future development of graduate education.
A study has been started to determine whether
or not a medical school at Brown is feasible and,
if so, what kind of medical school it should be.
This tentative step has been the result not only of
external pressure on the University to provide
medical education of high quality but also of
strong internal interest. The desire for Brown's
entry into this field is not restricted to the local
community; it is evidently national in scope. There
are very few first-rate universities in the country
that do not have a medical school and can add one
and thereby contribute to the solution of one of the
real problems of our society. A committee and
consultants have been appointed to study the ques-
ences held at Brown. These have the effect of
providing employment for the Faculty during the
summer — sometimes too much employment — and
thereby augmenting their compensation. More use
is made of buildings, particularly the dormitories,
and the result is additional income during the sum-
mer and a smaller cost per educational hour than
had previously been the case.
Perhaps within a few years we may be using all,
or nearly all, of our facilities from June to Sep-
tember. Some educators are enthusiastic advocates
of a 12-month academic year for the regular stu-
dent body. Others feel that this would deprive
students of the leisure of contemplation and put
an intolerable load upon the Faculty, particularly
if they were required to teach 1 1 months of the
year. Certainly, it would greatly weaken programs
Why Research Is Important
The research program of the University has
greatly expanded and improved in quality. Much
of this research is in the sciences and is supported
by contracts, many of which are with agencies of
the Government. A good deal of it, however, is
in the social sciences, and an increasing amount of
unsponsored research occurs in the humanities.
Money spent under contracts for research has in-
creased from $716,477 in 1954-55 to $1,375,937
last year. Annual grants in support of research
have increased from $136,341 to $1,708,511 dur-
ing the same period.
Research is important to the University for two
reasons: In the first place, it is one of the obliga-
tions of a university to enlarge knowledge and its
understanding. In the second place, active partici-
pation in research enlivens and deepens the Faculty
member and increases the interest of his students.
In modern times it has been customary to sus-
pend the educational activities of the University
at Commencement until the opening of classes in
September. During the last few years, however, a
summer school for teachers has developed, and
there have been a number of institutes and confer-
The Teacher and His Rewards
The development of the Faculty has been a
main concern. There are many ways in which
members of the Faculty can be made happy, but
one of the essentials is adequate compensation.
Mean salaries at Brown have increased by 75 per
cent for Professors and by 40 per cent for Associate
Professors, Assistant Professors, and Instructors.
The source for improvement of Faculty salaries
has been notably tuition, which has risen from
$2,159,892 to $4,422,782 over this period as a
result of the increase of tuition by stages from
$700 to $1400 a year. Increases in tuition have
been accompanied by growth in scholarships and
other aid, particularly loans, so that students al-
ready in college are not driven out if they are in
good standing and so that deserving applicants
will not be lost for financial reasons. There is no
real way to ascertain whether or not the economic
distribution of applicants has changed, because there
is no way of knowing who might have applied if
tuition had not risen.
The grants from the Ford Foundation for Fac-
ulty salaries were a great stimulus to raising other
money for improvement in salaries, although the
Ford benevolence, magnificent though it was, con-
tributed only a small proportion of the increase in
itself. There have been several bequests of con-
siderable size which, generally speaking, have been
used for the improvement of salaries. During the
last two years the Corporation has established en-
dowed chairs to memorialize substantial bequests.
The result of the improvement of Faculty com-
pensation has been a vastly better Faculty morale.
The Faculty are not contented, but they are clearly
pleased. A higher percentage than before of the
most able men, both young and mature, refused of-
fers to go elsewhere, with resultant benefit to us.
Furthermore, Departments have been able to re-
cruit from outside the University at higher aca-
demic levels than previously. Formerly, almost
all new appointments were at the level of Instruc-
tor or Assistant Professor j now, when necessary,
established men are brought in at the level of
Associate Professor or full Professor.
In judging what Faculty members to retain
and promote, an effort is made to pay equal atten-
tion to teaching and research, for both are equal
obligations of the university teacher. It is easier
to measure progress in research than development
in teaching, however, and perhaps the latter has
been more estimated than measured. A good deal
of attention is paid to the development of young
instructors as teachers, for the teacher is not born
whole, fully developed. In general, the efforts to
improve the staff of instruction seem to have been
effective. Here, of course, great credit must go
to the Chairmen of Departments.
The Student Body at Brown
If "College Boards" and class standing are
reliable measures, today's student body is better in
ability and accomplishment than any of its predeces-
sors. The average College Board scores have risen
since 1954-55 in the College from 522 Verbal and
560 Mathematical to 614 Verbal and 648 Mathe-
matical, and in Pembroke from S2>6 Verbal and
493 Mathematical to 645 Verbal and 621 Mathe-
matical. The median secondary school rank of all
degree candidates in the College has risen from 84
in 1954 to 89 in 1960; in Pembroke from 86 to
92. Nevertheless, the grade-point average of the
students has not materially changed. Attrition has
decreased, so that now about 75 per cent of the
men who enter the College graduate on time and
70 per cent of students entering Pembroke.
Many alumni and some members of the Corpo-
ration fear that, if students are chosen primarily
for their ability, they will be a less desirable group
personally and as leaders than if they are chosen
by other criteria. This might be true of a class
chosen statistically with reliance solely on College
Board scores and class standings, but that is not the
practice here. There is, moreover, no reason to
believe that virtue, charm, and leadership are less
abundant among bright, diligent people than
among their opposites.
There is a continued trend in the geographical
distribution of the students towards the West and
South, but it has been a matter of considerable
concern to many that the number and percentage
of Rhode Island students are decreasing. The
new State scholarship program promises to be
helpful in combatting this trend, for with the
State aid it will be possible for students who would
have had to commute to Brown to live on campus.
One of the results of an abler and more serious
student body has been an increase in the ratio of
entrants into graduate school; the percentage now
stands at about 55 per cent of the men and 20 per
cent of the women.
Student life seems more decent and orderly than
it has been in the past, though no less exuberant.
It is no longer fashionable to create mass disturb-
ances, but individuals continue enthusiastically to
exercise their constitutional right to make fools of
themselves. The West Quadrangle has made the
same change in the life of the independents at
Brown that the Wriston Quadrangle made in the
life of the fraternity men. This change has caused
many students to think carefully as to whether
they would really be better off in a fraternity. It
has caused the fraternities (or some of them, at
least) to seek to make themselves more attractive
to the serious student.
There appears to be a tendency to merge the
student activities of Brown and Pembroke. This
has its good and its bad side: On the one hand, it
may produce stronger activities, but, on the other,
it may threaten our coordinate organization.
The restoration of Manning Hall as a chapel
and the strengthening of the Chaplain's staff and of
the University Christian Association made it pos-
sible to abolish compulsory chapel and to institute
in its place a series of convocations. Generally
speaking, the voluntary religious program and the
compulsory convocations have been successful, but
there is considerable room for improvement in
Brown's Physical Resources
During the past five years the University has
spent about 7^ million dollars for new buildings,
for complete restoration of old buildings, and for
the improvement of many other existing buildings.
In addition. Dexter Asylum was purchased for a
million dollars, and for improvements there about
$200,000 more has been spent. The notable new
buildings are the West Quandrangle, the Psychol-
ogy Laboratory, the two new Pembroke dormi-
tories, and the Computing Laboratory. The resto-
ration of Upper Manning as a Chapel and the
complete renovation of Hope College are signifi-
cant achievements. The Auditorium-Skating Rink
is under construction (it will cost us another $900,-
000). Construction of the Heavy Engineering
Laboratory and the Biology Building should start
in the very near future. They will cost about 2^
There remain in our program the new Univer-
sity Library and the Science Library, the Engi-
neering-Physics Building, and the two additional
dormitories and a refectory at Pembroke. These
are urgently needed and must be completed
quickly if Brown is to continue its development.
The total cost of buildings completed, under
construction, or in prospect, and of major purchases
of land is more than half the value of the plant in
1956. This amount seems large, but we must
remember that some of the institutions that were
ahead of us have gained still more; others, of
course, have not.
During the past five years the annual budget of
Brown University has increased from $7,694,560 to
$13,480,840; in the course of each year, income
and expenditure have increased about $1,157,000
on the average. Total expenditure for current pur-
poses has been $54,079,154. We had $72,985 in
the Stabilization Fund in July, 1955; we now have
$23,554. Thus the total deficit for this period is
$49,431. Total capital expenditure for buildings,
land, and improvements has been $9,699,534.
During the five-year period, $1,671,488 was trans-
ferred from funds functioning as endowment to
plant for construction and acquisition.
The total of gifts and gains to endowment is
$14,416,328, of which $1,641,193 is the result of
the work of the Investment Committee. (Book
value was used.) On the other hand, the debt of
the University has increased by $3,500,000 as a
result of the construction of new buildings and
acquisition of property. During this period, how-
ever, debt of $2,330,993 has been retired.
More Than 27 Million in Gifts
Gifts have amounted to $27,734,319, of which
$7,837,768 was for current purposes, $4,213,078
for buildings, $2,834,962 for development items,
$12,775,135 for endowment, and $73,376 for
loans. The annual gift average for the five years
has thus been $5,546,864. The average of the five
years from 1950 to 1955 was $1,436,958 and, for
the five years before 1950, $1,063,439. Giving for
current purposes has increased from $633,928 in
1954-55 to $2,925,398 in 1959-60, despite the
capital campaign, which affected annual giving to
the University Fund and Pembroke College Fund,
but not total giving for current purposes.
Nevertheless, caution is suggested by the loss of
Brown's greatest benefactor. Of $27,734,319
raised in these five years, $5,424,500 came from
him. It becomes obvious that the University will
have to develop broader and deeper support.
It is cheering that twice as much money has been
given to Brown in the last five years as in the pre-
ceding 1 0, and about as much in those 1 as in the
preceding 50. A few great institutions, however,
have achieved as great or greater feats of accelera-
upon this broad community for its development
and, indeed, for its very existence. The University
informs the alumni by sending them the excellent
magazines from Brown and Pembroke, encourages
the holding of meetings and reunions, and asks
them to help in other ways. We should provide
an opportunity for continuing education and stimu-
late the desire for it.
A dministrative Responsibilities
The administrative organization and control of
this institution and of other universities and col-
leges furnish a fascinating subject for discussion.
There have been many changes even since our
younger alumni were in college; the longer a
man has been out, the greater the contrast that he
Not too long ago the Administration consisted
of a President, a Dean, a Registrar, and a Bursar.
As operations have grown more complex, organiza-
tion has enlarged and become more complicated.
All of the administration and control centers in
the office of the President, who is responsible to
the Corporation; increasingly the need to delegate
becomes obvious. Areas of direct activity by the
President must be restricted to those that are
really in need of his personal attention, for he
can no longer carry the administration under his
The office of the Provost has developed con-
siderably since its establishment in 1949, and
within the University today the Provost is inter-
changeable with the President. In the future, the
offices of the various Deans must be strengthened;
it may well be that the Corporation will have to
create new positions. Perhaps the President will
more and more become an "outside man." If so,
it may become necessary to create the office of the
Dean of the Faculty, with responsibility there
vested to develop the Faculty and instruction.
Brown's community is a very broad one. It
includes the City of Providence and much of the
State of Rhode Island; it includes alumni, parents,
and friends, wherever they are. Brown depends
Our Duty to the Community
Relations between "Town and Gown" have
been traditionally happy. Though Brown has
served the City and State by the very fact of being
where it is, the University has become more recep-
tive of late to requests for specific community
service that have come from government and in-
dustry. Brown has taken and is taking an active
part in several efforts to improve the state of affairs
in Rhode Island. Such calls for service must be
answered, where appropriate, for whatever hap-
pens to Providence and to Rhode Island happens,
too, to Brown. It is essential to the University that
this be a strong, vigorous, and prosperous com-
The duty of a university to a community is not
to seek popularity by acceptance of popular ideas
and beliefs just because they are popular. It must
lead in the development of new ideas and practices
for the future. Any program of public relations
based on conforming to present attitudes without
question is an abnegation of responsibility.
We have seen a little progress at Brown Uni-
versity during the past five years. Credit for the
progress belongs to a great many people: to the
Corporation, to the Faculty, to the alumni and
friends of the University, and — above all — to
Henry Wriston, who reinforced the foundation for
the structure being raised and who had a great deal
to do with the development of many of the men
and women who are now responsible for the Uni-

For Hartford's New Students
EIGHTEEN Freshmen and their fathers
attended the annual Freshmen Send-
Off Dinner sponsored by the Hartford
Brown Club. President Hawley Judd '45
presided at the affair, which was held at
the City Club, while Brad Benson '52 was
in charge of arrangements. Tom Caswell

talk to the first-year men.
Dan Howard '93, Brown's oldest grad,
gave the Freshmen an idea of the stamina
Brown men have. He stopped off down
town prior to the meeting to make a pur-
chase. Then, finding that he still had
plenty of time he decided to walk the
three miles to the City Club. "It was a
longer hike than I thought," he said, "but
I made it with a little to spare."

Rhode Island Activity
The Brown Clitb of Rhode Island held
its third annual Golf Tournament Oct. 27
at the Pawtucket Country Club. The duf-
fers held sway during the day, followed
by the social hour at 5:30 and dinner at 7.
Ernest T. Savignano '42 was Chairman of
the affair, and he was assisted by Ale.x Di-
Martino '29, Dr. Walter Jusczyk '41, and
Ned Barlow '49.
At the suggestion of Ed Kiely '50,
member of the Executive Committee, the
Club decided to sponsor the radio broad-
cast of the Brown-Princeton game. The
game was carried in the Rhode Island area
by WJAR. This was the only Brown game
carried locally during the 1960 season.
The Brown tent behind the Marvel
Gym has again proved to be a popular
meeting place for alumni before the home
football games. This is the third year that
the program has been followed, and the
Club would like to take this opportunity
to thank John W. Haley '19 for providing
the tent for the function.
Survey Shows N. Y. Interest
Even though a sale of the Clubhouse
was then in the offing, the New York
Brown Club launched a full program of
activities immediately following the an-
nual Sub-Freshman Dinner in the fall. The
four new Governors in the group of 23
operating the Club were honored with
their wives at a reception and dinner.
Making their first appearance on the
Board are: John L. Danforth '52, John E.
Liebmann '41, Edward Necarsulmer, Jr.,
'33, and Winthrop R. Munyon '42.
With the thought of expanding opera-
tions and services, the Club has canvassed
all the resident and non-resident members
with a 25-question survey. The results
from over 400 members are being tabu-
lated prior to a published report on the
findings. According to Christine M. Dun-
lap, Executive Secretary, the better than
50% response is indicative of the interest
of the Club members in strengthening the
position of the Brown Club in New York.
A new type of smoker was held on the
eve of the Brown-Princeton game, with a
large turnout of members on hand for the
pre-dinner compotation. In the two-hour
session. Director of Athletics Paul Mac-
kesey '32, Sports Publicity Director Pete
McCarthy, and former player and present
scout Bucky Walters '50, gave illuminating
talks, supplementing films of highlights
from recent games.
Washington's New Slate

Va., has been elected President of the
Washington Brown Club. Other officers in-
clude: Vice-President — Richard W. White
'50; Secretary — Earle V. Johnson '24;
Treasurer — George Viault '26. The Club
held a "going-away" luncheon for 10 area
boys entering the University last fall.

dressed by Maurice J. Mountain '48, for-
mer Assistant Vice-President of the Uni-

Paul Mackesey '32, Director of Ath-
letics, and Tom Caswell '60, Alumni-Ad-
mission Liaison Officer, will be the guest
speakers at the annual organizational
meeting of the Northeastern New Jersey
Brown Club on Dec. 6 at the Casa Mana
Restaurant, Teaneck, N. J. The affair will
get under way at 8 p.m. Mackesey will
discuss the over-all athletic picture at
Brown, including the latest information on
the new hockey rink. Caswell's topic will
be the role alumni can play in the admis-
sion program of a college. Reservations
should be made by calling Bob StoUman

BEFORE THE CROWD crossed over to the Stadium, soccer offered plenty of noon hour action on Alancn f-ieid.
FIRST PRIZE POSTER was Phi Kappa Psi's. The "Big Red" rode a Sputnik, was tracked and (right) blasted by the Bear.

The Season Ahead :
LIGHT AND DARK
Another Court Contender ?
WE HAVE the raw material to be a fac-
tor in the Ivy League race again,"
says Stan Ward, starting his seventh sea-
son on the Hill. He hedged a bit by add-
ing, "If all conditions are favorable." Last
year. Brown posted an over-all 13-12
record, the first winning campaign in six
years, and tied for third in the League
with an 8-6 mark, the second straight sea-
son in the first division.
"Our role as a contender last year gave
us experience," Ward believes, "and pres-
sure play taught us a lot. This improve-
ment should mean more poise and confi-
dence for our players, more respect from
our opponents, and continuing spectator
interest. We'll be shooting to maintain the
status of contender."
Five men have graduated from last
year's squad, four of them three-year let-
termen who contributed greatly to the
steady progress made: Co-Captains Dave
Reed and Cliff Ehrlich, Jack Bellavance,
and Al Diussa. (Pete Kallas was the other
1960 man.) Reed, with 767 points, ended
his Varsity career as the eighth leading
scorer in Brown history. Ehrlich, only five
points behind, ranks ninth on the list.
Diussa was an outstanding defensive
player, and Bellavance was the key figure
in some of Brown's finest victories with his
Capt. Forrest Broman (6-4), the West
Bridgewater, Mass., sharpshooter, and
hard-driving Dave Remington, the former
Andover Captain, are the only Seniors on
the predominately Junior team. While in
high school, Broman broke the all-time
Massachusetts scoring record. He finished
strong last season, and Ward believes that
he is now ready to carry his share of the
The Junior delegation will comprise the
heart of the ball club. Mike Cingiser, the
6-4, 220-pound All-Ivy backcourt man,
and Greg Heath, 6-5, 210-pound center
and Ivy honorable mention, will be the
nucleus on which to build. Ted Gottfried,
the 6-5, 225-pound jump shooter from
Elyria, O., and long John Taddiken, 6-6,
210-pound center from Valley Stream,
N. J., will help bulwark the front line.
The veteran Dave Brockway (6-1) and
Barry Behn (6-2) are expected to make
important contributions in the backcourt.
Although last season's Freshman team
had a 10-7 record, the group was con-
sidered below par in terms of Varsity po-
tential. Gene Barth, 6-7 corner man from
Lake Forest, 111., is the best possibility for
immediate help. Although he led the Cubs
in scoring with 267 points, he was also
rated by Jack Heffernan as the finest de-
fensive player he's had in his 12 years at
Brown. Bill Oellrich. a guard, is a good
shooter, but he has defensive deficiencies
Coach Ward predicts that Cingiser will
become one of the true greats in Brown
basketball history. He paced the team in
scoring last year as a Sophomore with 419
points from his guard position, and he
hasn't yet reached his true potential. A
flashy floor man, he also possesses just
about every shot in the hook. In addition,
he is a tenacious driver, perhaps the best
in the Ivy League. He has the tempera-
ment to be the take-charge player the
Last season. Ward had trouble finding a
steady running mate for Cingiser in the
backcourt. The same problem could e.xist
this winter. However, Ward hopes that
Brockway, Remington, and Behn will fill
Heath, at center, was the second leading
scorer last year. He hit for 303 points
and was the club's leading rebounder.
Like Cingiser, he is a fine player who is
going to continue to improve.
Captain Broman and Gottfried will
probably start at the corner positions, but
they are both going to have to hustle to
hold off the challenge of Sophomore
Barth. Gary Bowen, a 6-5 Junior, also
may be a factor. Playing behind Reed and
Ehrlich, Broman and Gottfried did not
score heavily last year.
The 1959-60 team was one of the most
colorful and exciting in recent years. The
Bruins should be just as interesting to
watch this season. Although Ward has no
real "big" man, he does have good aver-
age height and betler-than-average heft
for the battle of the boards. Paced by
Cingiser, the team should have an ade-
quate scoring punch. The Bears may run
more on offense than in recent years, and
the fans may see a few new defensive
The schedule is perhaps the most chal-
lenging in Brown's history. The Ivy
League should be well balanced from
top to bottom. Near home. Providence
College is now a national power, while
Rhode Island and Boston College remain
as two of the toughest teams in the New
England area. Amherst, one of the best
of the small college quintets in New Eng-
land, returns to the schedule, along with
Connecticut, perennial king of the Yankee
Conference. Also on the agenda are
games with Pittsburgh and Michigan on a
midwestern swing. "We certainly have no
"big time' aspirations," Ward noted, "but
we do want to bring the team to the
alumni, prepare ourselves for the Ivy
League race, and give the boys the educa-
tional experience of sectional travel."
The Freshman squad is expected to be
stronger than last year's group — although
there still is no "big" man. Some of
the candidates include: James Brindle
(6-5, 190), Paxtang, Pa.; Jay Jones
(6-5V4, 180), Lexington, Mass.; Ints
Kaleps (6-6, 200), Dayton, O.; Dave Lund
(6-6, 195), Auburn, Mass.; Gary Nell
(6-5, 180), Gambler, O.; Gary Nedron
(6-4, 180), Meyersdale, Pa.; Francis Dris-
coll (6-1, 180), Attleboro, Mass.; George
Campen (6-1, 185), Emerson, N. J.; Don
Bromfield (6-0, 180), Fayettesville. N. Y.
Driscoll, a guard, was named to the Class
A All-State team in Massachusetts, while
Nell, a classy cornerman, was picked on
the third team All-State Ohio, Class A.
Wrestlers Should Improve
Coach Ralph Anderton, starting his
14th season at Brown, thinks that the
Bruin wrestlers should improve on the
overall 2-6-1 record of last season as well
as the 1-4-1 Ivy League mark. "Barring
injuries we should be tough along the way,
but again we have little depth to provide
us with a cushion against possible injuries
or drop outs."
Gone from the 1959-60 Bruins are
Capt. Art Giorgini, Terry Case, John
Huntsman, and John Moyle. Giorgini,
wrestling at the newly created 191-pound
class, came into his own and won all but
the Yale meet. Sophomores moving up
from the 4-3 Freshman team include
Capt. Tom Paolino (157). Vin Aidala
BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY
(130), John Fish (123), Tom Delaney
(147), John Kaufman (123), Steve Mam-
malian (177) and Dave Fournier (177).
In most meets late last season, Ander-
ton was forced to go with five Sopho-
mores and one Junior on his nine-man
starting team. The lone Junior, Gene
Bouley, turned in a fine season and is
Captain this winter. Bart Mosser, 147, has
returned after concentrating on the books
the second half of last season. Undefeated
as a Freshman, Mosser also won his first
four meets a year ago.
Horrace Graves, a Junior, will handle
the 130-pound class, while Tom Noye,
another Junior, will battle three Sopho-
mores, Fish. Kaufman, and Aidala, for the
top spot at 123. It is expected that one of
these men will eventually move in behind
Graves at 130. Bouley, at 137, is backed
by the only other Senior on the team,
Dick Siebel. Paolino. the Cub leader, has
a good chance to start at 157. Delaney,
another second-year man, will probably
swing behind Mosser and Paolino.
Anderton's two trouble spots are at 167
and 177. Bob Klarsch, who left the foot-
ball squad in the fall due to an injury, is
the logical choice at 167 if he gets his
medical clearance. Two of the Sopho-
mores, Mammalian and Fournier, are in
line for the starting job at 177. Charlie
Coe, lineman on the football team, is ex-
pected to move into Giorgini's spot at
191. He wrestled there and in the un-
limited division last year. If Mammalian
does not make it at 177, it is conceivable
that he will give Coe a fight at 191.
Big Bill Wood, of course, should have
another fine year in the unlimited division.
In his first try at college wrestling, the
225-pound strong man had a winning sea-
son at Brown and then went to the finals
in the Eastern Intercollegiate Wrestling
Championships at Princeton before being
eliminated. "Wood still has a long way to
go as a wrestler," Anderton noted, "but
the encouraging thing is that he recognizes
the fact and is one of my hardest workers.
Our lack of depth has hurt in his case be-
cause we don't have a man to give him
any competition in our practice sessions."
A Dark Outlook on the Ice
"The hockey situ.vtion has never been
darker in my years at Brown, but we knew
this was coming and we will just have to
go with the Sophomores and look to the
future." On paper. Coach Jim Fullerton's
estimate of his team's chances seemed
most realistic. This may be a long winter
for Brown's hockey buffs.
Last year. Brown was 13-13 overall and
5-5 in the Ivy League, good for a third
place tie with Yale. This was a remarkable
record considering the numerous personnel
problems confronting Coach FuUerton.
Those problems, however, pale by com-
parison with the obstacles in his path this
Graduation took Brown's top three de-
fensemen, Al Scares, Brian Malloy, and
Ralph Lowry, the top line of Dave Kelley.
Dave Laub, and Bob Battel, and a second
line forward, Fred Adams. Kelley led the
CAPTAIN ROD McGARRY
team in scoring with 37 points, bringing
his three-year total to 95. He has to be
rated with Brown's all-time scoring greats.
Scares is described by Fullerton as "one of
the best college defensemen I've ever
seen." Both men were All-Ivy selections
during their career.
Only three lettermen will be available
this year — Capt. Rod McGarry in the goal,
and a pair of forwards. Senior John D'En-
tremont and Junior Gene Pfeiffer. The
team will have to be built around these
men, plus three other upperclassmen with
little or no experience and eight Sopho-
mores up from a fair Freshman club that
had a 4-6-1 record.
The 1959-60 Bears scored 76 goals and
had 72 assists. The skaters returning this
winter contributed only eight goals and
three assists to that total. Therefore, hav-
ing few potential scorers and no experi-
enced break-away man like Kelley, Coach
Fullerton expects to have his team play a
control game with the emphasis on de-
Fortunately, Brown has one of the best
goalies in the East in Captain McGarry.
Me received rave notices for his play in
the Boston Christmas Tourney and was
named its outstanding player. "McGarry is
very conscientious, a great competitor, and
he should be an aggressive leader," Fuller-
A complete rebuilding job is needed at
defense, and here Fullerton plans to go
with four Sophomores, Brian "Tim" Smith,
Colby Cameron, Gil Goering. and George
Costigan. All four were forwards for the
Cubs a year ago. "These boys are going to
make mistakes,'' Fullerton observed, "but
we hope to have them for three years and
expect that they will improve."
One of Fullerton's lines will also be an
all-Sophomore group. Bruce Mclntyre at
center will be flanked by Ed Ennis, a po-
tential scorer, and George McLaughlin.
Another unit will have D'Entremont,
Pfeiffer, and Junior Pat Kenny. If Fuller-
ton feels that he can safely use a third line
it will consist of Dave Babson. a Senior of
limited experience, Bert Creese, a Senior
who was a goalie as a Sophomore and who
didn't play last year, and George Wenzel,
League rules allow a team to dress 17
men. If Fullerton uses everyone who is
available he will probably come up with
no more than 14 players. This in itself will
be a severe handicap against most of the
teams on the schedule.
"Victories may be hard to come by this
year." Fullerton noted, "but I hope the
fans will be patient, especially with the
Sophomores. The team has a fine leader in
McGarry, it will hustle, and perhaps we
may be able to win a few somewhere
along the way."
A Stronger Tank Squad
Coach Joe Watmough expects his
swimmers to be stronger than last year's
7-4 squad in every event except the 100.
"We still are not in a class with Harvard
or 'Vale, and probably never will be, but
I think we have the strength and depth to
hold our own against the other teams on
Ed Nicholson, Bill Zani, Chuck Sie-
burth, and Ed Sampson have been gradu-
ated. Nicholson was rated by Watmough
as "one of the most competent swimmers
I've coached in my 17 years at Brown."
The team's top sprinter since his Sopho-
more season, Nicholson set a number of
records, including a 51.2 for the 100. He
was named to the All-American team as a
Leading the list of men available is John
Morris, a former high school All-Ameri-
can. In seven dual meets and in the New
Englands last winter, the Sophomore from
Wyoming Seminary, Kingston, Pa., scored
double victories in the 220 and 440. Mis
best time in the 220 was 2:13.6, and he
set a new Brown record in the 440 with a
4:58. Watmough expects him to break
most all of the Brown distance records in
the next two years.
Seven other Juniors figure prominently
in Coach Watmough's plans. Tom McMul-
len will swim the individual medley, med-
ley relay, and the sprints. Paul Huffard is
slated tor the sprints and relay. Both of
these men were high school AIl-Ameri-
cans. Watmough figures that Bruce Rogers
could break the backstroke record of
2:14.1, now held by Barr Clayson '58.
Giasi will be used in the relay, sprints, and
butterfly. Bill Alderman is vastly improved
as a diver.
Prentiss DeJesus, star of the Cub team
several seasons back, will be eligible this
winter. During his first year, he did the
200-yard freestyle in 2:02.6 and the 120-
yard individual medley in 1:13.7. "With
his ability, he's the type of swimmer you
can move around almost anywhere to help
the team," Watmough believes. Another
great Junior prospect is Steve Lesnik, high
school All-American from Maplewood,
N. J. He was the New Jersey champion in
the 200-yard freestyle and individual med-
ley. After a fine Freshman season on the
Hill, he missed the entire season a year
ago due to an illness. As we went to press,
he was still a question mark for this win-
Two Seniors and four Sophomores will
make up the rest of the team. Co-Captains
John Conron and Bill Fulton will handle
the 200-yard backstroke and the breast-
stroke, respectively. Mike Prior, captain of
the Cubs last year, will help in the 100-
yard butterfly, individual medley, and pos-
sibly the 440. Lewis Feldstein is rated a
good prospect in the sprints, and Ray
Waller is expected to add depth in the
breaststroke. According to Watmough.
Dick Paul has all the physical require-
ments to be one of Brown's real good
sprinters. However, he may be a year
The team should be exceptionally strong
in the 400-yard medley relay with Rogers
(backstroke). DeJesus (butterfly). Fulton
(breaststroke) and either Huffard or Paul
(freestyle). "This group could break our
school record of 4:01 if all goes well,"
The 400-yard freestyle relay could bet-
ter the Brown mark of 3:34.5, with any
combination of four of the following men
swimming: Huffard. McMullen. Paul, De-
Jesus, or Giasi. The 220 and 440 should be
even better, with Morris still improving.
The team's one weakness may be in the
Early indications were that the Fresh-
man team would be much stronger than
last year's 1-7 group.
A "Solid" Track Squad
Coach Ivan Fuqua predicts another
good season for his winter track forces.
"By Brown's standards, this should be a
solid club." the veteran Bruin mentor
noted. "The key men from last year are
still with us and we should have both
quality and depth."
Nine members of last season's 3-2 club
were graduated in June, including such
solid performers as Capt. Bill Mac.Ardle,
Vince MacDonald, Paul Choquette. Ed
Lawler, Dave Berger, and Dave Lange.
However, substantial help is expected
from at least the following eight men up
from the 2-2 Freshman team: Tom Gun-
zelman (600, 1,000), John Jones (mile and
two-mile), Ray Arruda (H.J., B.J.), Al
■Vodakis (shot), Steve Cummings (hur-
dles). Bob McGee and Bill Libby (mile),
and Dan Hurley (two-mile).
The team's strength should be in the
distances and the hurdles. Running in the
mile will be Capt. Bob Lowe, Gerry
Huetz, Ralph Steuer, and three Sopho-
mores, Gunzelman, Jones, and Libby.
Jones set a new Cub record with a 4:30.6
last spring. Lowe, of course, is the top
man at two miles. New England and
Heptagonal champion and winner of the
IC4A three-mile and 3,000-meter steeple-
chase, the slight Senior from Englewood,
N. J., has reached national stature and
should be ready for his best campaign.
Others running with him in the two-mile
will be Mark Foster and Bill Schwab,
Seniors, and Smith and Hurley from the
The relays should be strong. Angelo
Sinisi, Jim Moreland, and Phil Schuyler,
all Senior holdovers from the one-mile
relay unit, will be joined by the members
of the highly successful Freshman group,
Cummings, McGee, Jones, and Schnibbe.
Schwab and Gerry Huetz will be pressed
for positions on the two-mile team by the
men who set a new Freshman team record
of 8:17.8 last season, Gunzelman. Jones,
Libby, and McGee.
Gunzelman heads the group running the
1,000. He ran a 2:26.5 last spring and
bettered the Varsity time for the event on
several occasions. Another Sophomore,
Schnibbe, and four Seniors, Huetz, Schuy-
ler, Schwab, and Dick Katzive, will fill out
Sinisi and Moreland, back for another
year at the hurdles, will be joined by the
promising Sophomore. Cummings, a for-
mer Rhode Island All-State performer out
of Hope High. Moreland won the 440-
yard hurdles at the IC4As in 52.6, only a
10th of a second off the Olympic qualify-
ing standards. Both he and Sinisi were in-
vited to compete in the Olympic qualifica-
tions at California last June.
These men will also double in the
sprints, probably joined by footballer Ray
Barry. "We have no natural sprinter,"
Fuqua noted, "but these men will enable
us to hold our own in this event."
The Bear coach expects improvement in
the shot put, high jump, and broad jump.
In the shot. Sophomore Yodakis should
score heavily. Fuqua describes the 225-
pounder as "one of the best we've had in
recent years. " John Hoover and Joe Dyer
will help in the weights. Bob Wallace, a
Junior, has to he rated the top man in the
broad jump off his 23.2 showing against

has a less obvious quality, which, to some,
is as rewarding as the flower itself. More
than most bulbs, amaryllis can be an in-

Retirement In Rochester, N. Y.
THE Chamber of Commerce acted for
the community in Rochester, N. Y.,
when it sponsored a dinner on Nov. 15 in
honor of Dr. Wilbour E. Saunders '16,
President of Colgate Rochester Divinity
School since 1949. He is retiring from the

after taking office.
One message from College Hill for the

Keeney, who wrote: "Your outstanding
service to your church, your community,
and Colgate Rochester Divinity School is
a matter of record. I would like to take
this opportunity, as President of your
Alma Mater, to express my deep apprecia-
tion, not only for the work for which
your friends in Rochester are honoring
you, but also for your loyal and effective
service to Brown University in many ca-
pacities over the years. As a Trustee, as
one of our most popular speakers, and in
many other ways, you have given to Brown
something of yourself which has enriched
the life of the University."
Dr. Saunders' theological studies, at Un-
io.: Theological Seminary, followed grad-
uation from Brown, and he did other
graduate work at Columbia (earning an

C^ATHER AND SON have Combined talents
*- to create a popular new children's
record, "Popeye's Zoo," issued last month
by Noble Records. The father is George
B. Cole '27, whom alumni have often seen
at the piano at New York dinners but
better known professionally as a composer,
conductor, and arranger; the son is James
P. Cole '55, a radio and TV copy writer
for McCann, Erickson, New York agency.
George, who wrote the music and con-
ducted the orchestra for the record, is no
newcomer to the field. Last year his "Ara-
bian Knights" (RCA Victor) won an
Academy Award from the National Acad-
emy of Recording Arts and Sciences; this
"Granny" is the "Oscar" of the recording
industry. Jim wrote the lyrics for six of
the songs in the album.
Popeye apparently loses none of his
long popularity. Some even regard him as
"the hottest thing in the industry for
children." Television's playing the old
shows have so held their favor that King
Features has just created 208 new Popeye
films which were released simultaneously
with the Cole album.
The story of the recording is how Pop-
eye got the stars for his zoo, telling about
the individual animal and where it lives,

BROWN ALUMNI MONTHLY
From a Saigon Correspondent
The U.S. Government asked Prof. 1. J.
Kapstein 76 to go to Vietnam for a year
as a Visiting Professor of American Lit-
erature. Before he left, he attended a
regular meeting of the Board of Editors
of this magazine and "promised to write."
The result follows, a special report from
our correspondent in Saigon:
ON Monday evening. Sept. 12, the
Brown Club of Saigon, Vietnam, met
at my house at 24 Duy Tan and got itself
unofficially established by electing Stella
an honorary member of the Club and by
passing a resolution which deplored the
absence of another honorary member in
Hong Kong at the time of the meeting.
The official roster of the Club for the
first meeting consisted of: Lt. R. D. Taylor
'57, J. D. Perrine "54, and I. J. Kapstein
'26. (The absentee in Hong Kong was
Mrs. Perrine, nee Sally Delaney, Pembroke
'55.) I am enclosing a picture of all who

Perrine's camera, which refused to operate

until he primed it (it, not us) with Scotch
whiskey. As for us, being true Brown men,
we were primed with nothing more than
Seven-Up and Coca Cola. Dinner was
served by our white-clad, bare-footed do-
mestique whose piece de resistance was
duck with orange sauce.
I am happy to say that this was a meet-
ing which had no agenda, discussed no
problems, made no appeal for funds, and
kept no minutes. We just sat around ask-
ing and answering one another's nosy
questions about what we were doing in
Saigon, the assumption being that, as
Brown men, we were naturally compan-
ionable and outgiving.
I told them that I was teaching four
courses at the University of Saigon, three
at the Faculty of Letters and one at the
Faculty of Pedagogy. (The university is
set up like a French university, with sep-
arate Faculties.) At the Faculty of Let-
ters, I am the whole American Literature
program. My students are alert, industri-
ous, and extremely courteous. They rise
to their feet when 1 enter the room and
rise again when I leave it. Their English
could be better — but that's one reason
I'm here. Stella is doing some teaching at
the Vietnamese-American Association and
expects to teach English at a Vietnamese
public school. So much for the senior
members of the Club.
As for Perrine, he is working for an
engineering company which is building
roads and bridges for the Vietnamese
Government; he is a specialist on soil
analysis. Taylor, our third member, we
caught just in time for our meeting. Hav-
ing just finished his hitch in the Navy
(his job here was that of Naval Attache),
he was on his way back to the States and
thence to the University of Manchester in
England for graduate study in English.
Of course, a great deal of our talk was
about Brown. Perrine and I feel we con-
stitute a quorum and that, with our hon-
orary members, we can still function as a
Club. So, until the end of the academic
year here, anyway, the Brown Club of
Saigon, Vietnam, will continue to meet.
My very best regards to all my colleagues
on the Board of Editors, especially to
Arthur Braitsch and Jay Barry.
Stella has written this out for me be-
cause my right wrist has been overworked.

AT THE DEDICATION In Peru: Frank Brown '36, Bill Whitehouse '53, Mrs. Howard Wenzel '54, Wenzel '54, and Paul Morrison '42.
Memorial and a Reason
IT WAS an unusual memorial to a Brown
man in far-off Peru, and several Bru-
nonians participated in its dedication not
long ago. James K. Donaldson '5\, who
died in 1959, had been General Manager
of Hogares Peruanos S.A., initialing its
program to provide popular housing in
the Lima area. The model home in the
new development, dedicated to Donald-
son's memory, stands as a tribute to his
efforts in promoting low-cost housing
throughout the world.
In building and selling homes for
obreros and empleados, Hogares Peruanos
S.A. has carried out its slogan. "Todo
hombre tiene un hogar (Every man a
home-owner 1." One of its officers has
said: "In owning a home, no matter how
small, a man has a tangible piece of pri-
vate property. He generally loses interest
in collectivist philosophy and becomes a
constructive force in the community.
Thus, in cooperation with other organiza-
tions, we hope to help more Peruvians to
own their own homes."
In September. 1959, the Board of Di-
rectors of the Export Import Bank of
Washington approved a loan to Hogares
Peruanos S.A. for four million soles to
provide partial financing for an initial
project of 70 or more houses. The loan
is to be repaid in soles over 10 years at
interest. The company believes this is the
first loan made by a U.S. Government
agency to a private building firm for con-
struction of houses outside the United
States and its territories.
E. Howard Wenzel, Jr., '54, the com-
pany's General Manager, is its only Amer-
ican staff member. Architect, technical
consultant, counsel, and contractor are
Peruvians, while the Banco Continental
has agreed to guarantee and service the
repayment of the loan to the Export Im-
port Bank. Wenzel succeeded Donaldson
as General Manager (both were pioneer
proponents of crew and rowed at Brown).
All Brown men in Peru were invited to
the dedication ceremony, and three were
present in addition to Wenzel: Frank
Brown '36, Field Representative for South
America for Associated International Un-
derwriters; Bill Whitehouse '53, Freight
Sales Agent for the Grace Line; and Paul
Harrison '42, Public Relations Counsel to
the Government of Puerto Rico. (Harri-
son was visiting in Lima with Willard
Garvey, President of Hogares Peruanos'
parent company. Builders, Incorporated.)
Mrs. Wenzel, Pembroke '54, was also
there. Unable to attend were: Mrs. Peg
Johnson Whitehouse, Pembroke '53; Wil-
bur Deming '44, Jasper S. Costa '27, and
Dr. Robert Eisner '44.
Donaldson died in Karachi, where he
had gone to set up a $30,000,000 low-cost
housing project as General Manager for
Builders. He had left Peru after complet-
ing the arrangements for the project
there. It was ironical that the loan appli-
cation had been approved for his Lima
proposal about 24 hours after his death.
His company honored his memory with a
gift to the University that established a

His Three Extra Years
WILLIAM Ray Potter '42 in Provi-
dence, Sept. 15. The obituary might
have been left with its fellows in the gen-
eral necrology of '"In Memoriam," but
there we could not have told the Bill Pot-
ter story which warrants telling.
Bill Potter had lived two lives. The
second began in 1954 when he first no-
ticed symptoms of trouble. His doctors
found out what it was: amyotrophic lat-
eral sclerosis, the same rare disease which
killed Lou Gehrig. TTiree years is a long
life after it hits. (Bill was to live six.)
WRLIAM R. POTTER '42 (his Senior plioto)
Bill Potter's fight was unusual in itself,
and he was stubborn in his determination
not to become an invalid. He used me-
chanical devices, some of his own design,
to counteract his growing infirmities — to
help him read, for example, or to let him
write a bit. He refused to let his mind
grow slack or to have his world contract,
though he could scarcely move in his
wheelchair. His car was driven to a spot
behind the goal posts where he could
watch Brown football; arrangements were
made so that he could see the squad scrim-
mage in Dexter-Aldrich Field early this
fall. He read a lot and thought a lot.
An Extraordinary Report
Perhaps the most remarkable thing Bill
Potter did was to volunteer his help in a
series of articles which Ben H. Bagdikian
wrote for the Providence Evening Bulletin.
They were collaborators in an objective,
detailed, personal account of tragedy and
bravery. Bill thought he would like others
to know what it is like to have a promis-
ing business career cut short and to face
certain death while still young. He said
he wanted to give encouragement to others
dying from incurable illnesses:
"Maybe it will end the attitude most
people have toward a person who's going
to die — There's no hope, what's the use of
doing anything?' " He had some feeling
for what friendships meant, and a family's
love. It was a long story, not easy to read
if you had feelings. But you sensed the
effort Bill was making to communicate,
and you responded to his courage and
understood what he was doing so superbly.
It was one of the most ennobling bits of
journalism we have ever read. We are
surprised it had only local currency,
though it was lengthy.
Potter had done a lot of thinking. "If I
had my life to live over again," he told
Bagdikian, "I think ... I wouldn't be
so concerned with what people thought of
me ... I wouldn't be such a conformist.
I wouldn't be so anxious to conform to the
image of the successful man — to be a
financial success, to be active in civic
affairs. I would be more lazy. I'd read
more . . ."
He said if he could get back his lost
bodily functions, the ones he would value
most would be: "First (easy), breathing;
second, chewing; third, one of my hands
back; fourth, control over my emotions;
fifth, my voice; sixth — if I got back the
first five, the heck with the rest."
During the summer he had to have an
electric aspirator on hand to help him
swallow. When Hurricane Donna ap-
proached in September, he asked to be
taken to the Rhode Island Hospital be-
cause of the possibility that power would
fail at his home, as it eventually did. A
slight cold became worse in the hospital,
and he fell into a coma to die. He was
spared the only fear he'd had about death
itself — the characteristic choking which
strikes most victims of the disease. He had
a peaceful end, and he'd had twice as
many years as was usual in such cases.
A Memorial Hour at Brown
Potter was Vice-President of his Class
at Brown and President of his fraternity.
Alpha Delta Phi. He had Navy service in
the Pacific as a Lieutenant. When he came
home, he joined the administrative staff
of the University and directed student
activities for some time, successfully. Later
he went into business, with the Dixon
Corporation, a plastics and textile ma-
chinery firm in Bristol, R. I., for which
he was Vice-President and Sales Manager
until illness forced him to retire.
Early in September he'd sent a check
to this magazine as a voluntary subscrip-
tion, signing the note of appreciation he'd
dictated. He'd enjoyed his contacts with
Brown and his fellow alumni.
The memorial service on the Brown
Campus was an unforgettable noon hour
for those who filled Manning Chapel. He
had anticipated the hour and made his
desires known: "nothing gloomy," a fa-
vorite hymn or two, "Chapel Steps," some
passages he'd marked in military booklets,
a prayer sent him from home in wartime.
His minister, the Rev. Robert H. Schacht,
Jr., and his headmaster at Choate School,
the Rev. Seymour St. John, officiated. One
of them recalled that Bill had said: "I've
always liked the nighttime, and autumn is
my favorite season."
In lieu of flowers, checks came to the
University, for the Brown University
Fund. Some $625 was acknowledged in
the next few weeks, put aside in a me-
